    urban velodromes

    The other week, a local park in the middle of a roundabout near where I live (called Arnold Circus) was closed to traffic and they had a circus on top with arcobats and clowns etc. it was really cool. It got me thinking that it would be really cool to close off the roundabout and turn it into an urban velodrome. The following is just a few suggestions (the first is Arnold Circus), does anyone else think this would be cool?
