Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Sundays at Kissena Velodrome

I heard (read) talk of a Madison training program at the Kissena Velodrome. Are there any plans to get that moving? Have y'all been riding out there?

Prospect Park Races on Thursday nights

As for the velodrome "closing"...Ceya is spot on. It's a New York City public park so you can, in theory, ride whenever there has not been a reservation made for private training or events. There are no lights for nighttime riding though. Oh and a helmet, drop bars and fixed gear are technically required. (Although I have literally ridden with a homeless guy riding clockwise, doing S turns up and down the banks on a duct-taped mountain bike...but that's why I love NYC cycling...this sh*t's for EVERYBODY! ) Not too many restrictions other than that. There is a 4' gate you might have to hop, but at least there aren't burnt out Oldsmobiles in the infield anymore.
