Hi Iím new. Ö. :) Well new to this forums, old to every place else. :D
I need info on riding in, access to, locations of, excreta. Iím looking for any thing that might be relevant to cycling in a salt mine. The information is for background flavor use in a novel. If you have personally raced underground in a mine your impressions would be of great interest to me.

I have never heard of an underground race before, least of all in a salt mine.
You could probably kiss your chain goodbye when you returned to the surface.

Actually, red bull had this race down a salt mine in Germany or they did last year anyway. They had a big article in Dirt Magazine a while ago.

Doode, is it more possible that you'd die on that track than any other track on the world? IF you fall, it's hello hot ash, goodbye armor!

uhh... it's potash, not hot ash.

Quiet you! I say hot ash.
I don't think words can really express how cool that sounds.
