The Nutley Velodrome will present a complete history of cycling in northern New Jersey, featuring the Nutley Velodrome, the site of the final chapter of the golden age of cycling in the United States. The book seeks to shed light on a lost history of professional cycling, which had been a major spectator sport during the early decades of the 20th century. As such, it examines the culture and noteworthy figures of this period in northern New Jersey. The story of the Nutley Velodrome is that it is the final chapter in cycling's golden era. It is, quite literally, where and when the golden age came to an end. It is a "lost" history, which is why the story needs to be told.
