    Looking for Former Friends and Members of the "Rainier Wheelmen" Seattle Wa.

    Anybody on the this "Fifty Plus" remember.
    The Rainier Wheelmann Seattle WA. 1960s'
    We used to ride together and go to the track races in Carnation. I think it was a flat track too. Marrymore had the bank track

    I should have posted this in the 70+ group.
    I was 10 then and now it's fifty+ for me. Those guys where all 20s 30s.
    This was Seattle before the Cascade group came around.

    Bump this thread.
    I got the straight story from a former Wheelman.

    Actually Marymoor wasn't built yet in the sixties. I think it opened in 1975. We used to go mainly to the Spanaway 1/4 mile asphalt car track down by Tacoma (it had very slight banking), and we would also go to the Alpenrose Dairy track in Portland, which is (still) a proper banked cycling track. I think we went to a high school (cinder) running track on the Eastside once too.
