I found an outdoor track to ride on tonight!!!
It's a school track with a concrete surface in reasonable condition.
It doesn't have banked curves and it has sand on it in places making
those sections slippery. I had to leave because of a thunder storm,
but it will get plenty of usage now that I have permission from the
local police deptartment to ride there now.
I'll have to take the Motobacane Mirage out next time. It will be fun to
test my legs running it's 52/16 (88 inch) gearing. Hopefully the rain will
clean off some of that sand. On a clean track 30 mph laps might be possible.
Of course the Nomade would look sweet there too if I put the matching
tri spoke front wheel on it. It runs a 52/18 and would also be fast.
