I just came across this little video in which some folks travelled all the way from Ottawa to the Forest City Velodrome. Made me want to get a group together to head down once again, say, in the new year.

I am in for some track cycling

If you haven't been to the FCV before, the "Track 1" course is required before they'll let you do anything else.  It's on Saturdays from 12-2:30 and Sundays from 2-4.  With 12 people, we can reserve a Track 1 session for the club.  First available Saturday is currently Feb 16.  Track 1 sessions book up way out in advance so best get organized quickly if folks are serious about a private Track 1 session in Feb.  I don't mind setting this up with Rob Good at FCV like in past years.  Just need assurance that there are enough new people interested in riding "Track 1".

For those who have ridden on the track before and don't want to re-ride the intro course, how about joining me for the open rec ride: Saturdays, 8:30-12:00 or Sunday 12:00-2:00.  I'll post next time I'm headed to London.

Thank you, Jon. I saw that video and decided to get the ball rolling, hoping – and knowing your expertise here – you would step in to take the reigns. Feb 16th (or another Saturday) sounds pretty good to me!

Many thanks again!
