YOU SPIN ME ROUND
From The Department Of Style:
There is an incredible purity to track cycling. It’s not unlike great design. When you pare everything down, forget the bells, whistles, frills and anything that isn’t absolutely necessary, you are left with a track bike and a perfectly smooth, unobstructed course on which to ride it.
This is what a velodrome represents. Cycing, stripped down to the bare essentials. And it is beautiful. The bikes are works of art, fit to be stared at for lengthy periods, even while at rest.
The sport of cycling is on the rise in the Republic of Armenia and this track appears to be at the center of it all. Thanks to my buddy Daniel for the tip on this video.

This shot just popped up on Kyle’s Flickr. Save the track bike stadium!
I love just track videos like this. Stowmarket Cycle Club took a trip to the UK’s oldest indoor velodrome for a day of riding.
