BOWL OF COLD 

Housed in an unheated airplane hangar on the coast of Southern England, the Calshot Velodrome has a reputation for getting pretty cold.  Here she is looking particularly frigid.

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.
