I've never seen a velodrome under construction before. Thanks for the link. It's pretty cool.

The entire cycling center sounds wonderful! I am impressed! I'd love to see it when it's all done - ride it, maybe? ;~)

That is cool. I wish they would build one near where I am. As I understand it, the velodrome for the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto is to be built in Hamilton.
