Track cycling

I finally hit the velodrome! It's been too long since I last went and man do I miss it. Last weekend I went to the Forest City Velodrome in London, Ontario for a recreation ride. This was both exciting and scary as this would be the first time I would be riding on the track with 10+ other cyclists as they reach speeds of 60km/hr as they ride literally inches above me on the track. Nevertheless, everyone was safe and had an awesome time. I also think we went overboard with taking photos, but I don't mind. Here are some I took using somebody's camera:

*Does anyone know how to avoid having my images clipped like this?*

At 138m and with banks as steep as 51 degrees the Forest City Velodrome is the shortest and steepest permanent track in the world.

Wow! This looks intense! For the bike lovers out there, check out how you can help others by eating chocolate and building bicycles...
