Tuesday Track Racing

When: Tuesdays. Continues through Aug. 6 2013

Track cycling is a physics soup of velocity, acceleration, gravity and friction that keeps racers from capsizing on a steep-sided track at speeds of up to 40 mph. Hereabouts, the locals test their chops Tuesday evenings at 7 through Aug. 6 at the Velodrome in Memorial Park (280 S. Union Blvd.,, and you can watch for free. But if spectating doesn't cut it for you, sign up for the four-session "Learn the Velodrome" intro class for men and women 12 and older, sponsored by the Olympic Training Center, Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado and Summit Cycling. Learn track-cycling rules, strategies, etiquette and time-trialing techniques on a provided single-speed, no-brakes bike. It costs a hundred bucks, but graduates get a $100 discount on their USOC track training pass. — Mary Jo Meade

Price: Free for spectators
