Horrendous would be a better description. We used to go down there and camp in the infield for the weekend.....good times. It is a shame really...it is a nice track to ride when it isn't full of grass filled cracks. There has been talk of resurfacing but at $50k plus it hasn't moved forward.

paving is big money! 50k sounds about right, if not a little cheap.

Crazy derny racing freaks! They make the forks backwards so you can tuck right in behind the derny.is that coming off the bars tho? looks like a brake cable or something but we know better.

Cavernmech & somnambulant have the transport so when ever for me. I can cancel anything (not that i have anything to cancel)
Looks like we need to do level 1 so it needs to be a Saturday & if there races or not doesn’t matter to me but would be cool if there was so long as we can get out there and have some fun.
Cheers
If i can bring my bike i will but will happily rent & happy to help with gas

Subject: Info....


Hello Mr Good:

I'm enquiring as to whether or not you have the capability to accommodate a
bunch of riders bussing in from Toronto to ride your wonderful track.
We're a bunch of friends in Toronto that love all forms of cycling, and
most
are fixie riders here in the city.

We have a variety of skill levels from racers to velo newbies, so I know
some introduction to the track will be required. I can't speak of numbers
of
scheduling as of yet, but I'm trying to figure out how many people can
realistically fill a session. We'd love to be a party as it were.

Any information you can supply me would be wonderful.
Thank-you.

Andrew Mills


Hi Andrew, we can accomodate up to 20 riders in a session. Fee is $20 for
the session (usually 2hours min.) and $10.00 bike rental. Look at the
calander on the site pick a Saturday that has racing at night and make
arrangements to come on down and have a "Blast"

Just let us know the numbers and date.
rg
