THE WHISKEYDROME


The dudes from Whiskeydrunk Cycles are bringing so much awesome with this one. The Whiskeydrome measures 18 feet across the bottom (diameter) which I think means it’s about 17 meters in diameter. How’s that for a short track?
IT’S ALWAYS DRY INSIDE 

It’s raining today in Los Angeles — one of the only cities in the USA where rain is a reason to blog — which means that the Home Depot Center Velodrome is the currently dryest place for a bike ride.  Check out the training schedule to find out when you can ride the track.

The HDC Velodrome is under new management as of a couple months ago which means some changes including a new web page so check it out and update your bookmarks.  If you have any suggestions for the velodrome management, contact Adam Duvendeck.
