Detroit's Abandoned Velodrome

Hi, I usually post in C&V, so forgive me if you all have seen this before. I got this link from LMB, the league of Michigan Bicyclists. I've lived in the Detroit area all my life, but never heard of this until now.

Yeah, if people wouldn't drive cars and motorcycles on it, it might be in decent shape. The "mower gang" did go and clean it up about a month ago, so it is OK for mountainbike riding currently. Ah, the days...
