improper use of vehicles = fun: the chicane visits the detroit velodrome

the dudes from the chicane of detroit decided to turn a velodrome into a hood ass board track. you may recall this velodrome being taken over by the mower gang not too long ago. this, even though it's the wrong kind of bike, makes me smile. this drome needs some love, but it's a ghettodrome- so it's good on it's own being hood. underground night races anyone? someone go and restore this bad boy! restoration mob! that would be awesome...
saw it on coco's

Thanks for the link, Jmik. We were worried that cycling folks would think we were stepping on toes, but so far everyone has been digging it. And now The Mower Gang that cleared the spot is considering hosting a run-what-ya-brung race.. Fantastic

its just cool to see this drome being used considering it's shape not too long ago! all the purists would cringe, but at the end of the day, it's a rescued public velodrome and that's all that matters.

on another note, i'm officially addicted to your blog. i'm a closet nerd on all that stuff- there's a 62 beetle in my garage with a momo prototypo steering wheel(i was beginning to think i was crazy knowing the relevance of the part).

thanks for sharing the experience man! i look forward to seeing more!
