Hear the 'Cyclical Speed of the Velodrome'

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hear the 'Cyclical Speed of the Velodrome'

Pretty cool story about velodrome racing on NPR today.

'Bicycle racer Rick Denman shares the sound of Velodrome racing with us. The wooden sloped track shudders under the weight of a pack of bikes swooshing around. He explains some of the fine points of a sport that once drew huge crowds in this country, and still does in Europe.'

Listen here.
Tom Hagen: 'Thank you for the dinner and a very pleasant evening. If your car could take me to the airport - Mr. Corleone is a man who insists on hearing bad news immediately.'
