    Yeah. Yes. Definitely. Let's keep this thread alive and kicking for the rest of the season, and we can see who's coming, going, arrange 7-train or bike rides out to Flushing together. I'm glad that they're doing it. Like usual, my attendance will probably be spotty, but I am going to try to make it to at least a few of these.

    For those that don't know, Match Sprints and Team Sprints are SUPER FUN GOOD TIMES.

    PS - My excitement level for bikes has increased like ten-fold with the coming of the nice weather. I don't think I even realized how the winter was affecting me, i/r/t enthusiasm. Spring rocks.

    Does anyone know if this is going to replace the weekend training/classes that they held last year?

    Looks cool, but I take it that this is not the session for complete neophytes like myself? When is that session?

    the pdf seems to imply that it's open to all. i wouldn't worry. just make sure yr bike is up to basic track specs.

    It happens on Saturdays in the morning/early afternoon/into the afternoon. If I remember correctly, it starts at about 10:30/11:00am. There are always people training there on Saturdays.

    Just FYI for the newbies: I think your idea of these "sessions/workshops for beginners," is probably WAY MORE official in your mind than it really is. Not to undermine what Campo and co. do. It's great. But it's sort of a loose thing, not very regimented, and sort of subject to the whimsy of what John feels like doing that day. For example, to start, often you'll just do 100 laps around the track. Which is good, because you'll get a feel for what it's like to ride on the track, and also what it's like to ride in a paceline if you've never done so before. And because the tempo starts pretty slow, it's fairly unintimidating.

    What I'm trying to say is that no one is going to take you and say, "This is how you track race, I'm going to teach you, step 1..." I'm only saying this b/c in my mind, for some reason, before I actually went, I thought it was going to be something to that affect, but it is not. So ask a lot of questions if you need to. Trackies are a generally friendly bunch, and the old-skool guys have a lot of knowledge to offer, so utilize them as a resource.

    Consider me there next week. Tonight is BFF (not best friend's forever) and I'll be doing that instead.
    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    for us downtown it's either take the train (I hear it gets a little crowded) or just ride straight there.
    you still got the same #? I'll give you a call.
