I think Redmond is a floppy donkey schlang of a commute just to ride on the velodrome . Who else would like to see a 'drome in the south sound area? It could start as a packed dirt track with painted or chalk stripes and slowly improve from there.
There are other dirt/clay velodromes I do beleive, it is perfectly acceptable, I've seen motor flat tracks that were so hard and smooth that they were shiny and streaked with black tire marks . On even slightly banked tracks the only mud issue comes up when useing it during or within 1/2-1 hour after active rainfall, generally they need to be hosed down during the summer before races, for dust and traction.
Just need a piece of land and a non profit group to manage it. The rest is volunteers and donations/useage fees/bike rental fees etc.
What do YOU think?
