I found out a while back that I'd be tavelling to MN a fair bit in the coming months.
When I got there, a buddy showed me something I did not even realize was there - A Velodrome!!!!
I made plans immediately to go and give it a try. I scheduled my flight so I could head straight to the 'drome as soon as I landed. Things worked out perfectly, and by 4pm, I was getting basic velodrome training from the track manager.
By the end of the evening, I was ripping around the velodrome on a rented GT track bike. To say it was incredibly fun is a gross understatement.
