My Eyes Are UP HERE

Its comforting to see he hired children to be his crutches.
Nice. I grew up close to the Montreal Velodrome that was built for the 1976 Olympics. I've been inside as a kid and the banking is super intimidating. From memory it's 40-something degrees. The track was torn down in the late 80's to make room for a pair of science museums (Biodome and Insectarium).woah that is amazing. I've never seen one in person, I'd love to see how banked the track and curves are.
if the 2016 Olympics had selected Chicago as their city, the plan was for a velodrome to be constructed in the park about 1000 feet from our house. I think other BMX and or mountain biking would have been built over our golf course. If that bid had been accepted though, I don't think we'd have been able to afford the big house that we bought over there though, and that turned out to be a good investment with the way gentrifcation moved that way.
Today I accidentally caught a glimpse of myself in a window. I was not horrified. As a matter of fact I couldn't STOP looking at myself. I am quite impressed with how my body looks today. I can hardly wait to see me next spring when I will be at least another 50lbs lighter.
Track racing is so boring. Have you considered bike polo? It's a thing.It certifies that you can go round the track? It's four 2-hour sessions with a coach, and it's the first step towards being able to enter races and more advanced coaching.
I wanna race other over-the-hill 40-somethings.
