Track riding in Helsinki, Finland?

I'll be in Helsinki for the next 4 weeks and I need to keep my riding/racing fitness! Anyone know if there is an indoor track there? I noticed a bike club called Cycle Club Helsinki but can't seem to figure out where they train. THANKS!

As ridiculous as it sounds, I think they only have outdoor tracks

Welcome to Finland. Indoor tracks are for sissies.

Seriously though, CCH seem to claim in their (Finnish) home page they have a chance to use a 200m indoor track of sorts. It isn't exactly clear where that is or what kind of track they're talking about. I suggest you contact directly their President, Mr. Pekka Siren (you'll find the e-mail link in their home page under the "Johtokunta" -section) to see what they actually mean by that.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

This might be too late, but.. Ive been riding indoors this winter, the place is called "Liikuntamylly" (located at Myllypuro, east-Helsinki) and you can go there with subway. But you should contact Pekka Siren.
