My question is for any track riders from the Portland area, or any intermediate to experienced riders who are familiar with the Portland area and the outdoor velodrome there.
I am thinking about moving to Portland in the next year or so after I save money. I am getting more into track cycling and want to focus solely on this type of racing. I am currently being coached and have begun to take training for race season seriously.
If I am trying to take training seriously, would Portland be a good decision? I know it rains there pretty often so I wasn't sure if it would be a waste of time. I love the area but really want a good amount of time dedicated to riding the track and training. I was told LA would be a better choice for track focus, but I just don't like the Carson/Long Beach area all that much. I'm currently in the San Jose, CA area, riding at Hellyer park.
Thank you to anyone who has any feedback!
