TTown Public Track Time

Ok so i've tried searching (TTown, T-Town, trexlertown... etc.) and i went to the ttown website. There are references both on bf and on the ttown website to public time at the drome. It says you can ride any bike and that the only rule basically is that you have to wear a helmet. However, i cannot find a reference as to when the public time is. I mean, its clearly not during races or time where the track is reserved. Is is ANY other time? ANY time within "business hours" that is not reserved? Also, how crowded are the public times? I mean, can you spin like a mother****er? or would you hit someone? I guess it would depend on the time... so when are the off-peak public times? thanks... (can you tell i browse the SS/FG forum by my feeling that i had to mention that i searched first?)

You got it. Nothing on the schedule = open track time. Even the big training sessions are listed (Thursday nights). Lots of room out there on the track.

You should consider a "try the track" day if the Air Products program is not ideal for you (though I have seen folks commute from Philly for it). Have fun!
