    Thumbs up If it isn't in use you can jump on in and ride a few laps

    I think this web site is a great place to start

    I've raced at Marymoor velodrome. First you take a 4 hour weekend class which teaches you how to ride on the track safely with a fixed gear bike.

    After you take your class you can begin monday night beginner racing. If you ride safely and well on monday nights, then after two monday night races you can start racing on wednesday nights as a category 4 racer. Categories 1, 2, and 3 race on friday nights.

    You can rent track bikes at the velodrome for 5$.

    It is a hell of a lot of fun. I suggest that you give it a try.

    go here for all the necessary information:

    My first time EVER racing...

    This season, I entered Velodrome racing. I've never raced on a bicycle... EVER. It is fun when you are racing with the right group of people. I have had mixed results; but I realize that training makes all the difference. I do recomend it!
