Racing Returns to Herne Hill
« on: September 12, 2011, 12:21:42 am »
The Dave Creasy Memorial Event re-opened Herne Hill Velodrome today.

The new surface looks fantastic - photos here.
A world of bedlam trapped inside a small cyclist.

I would have loved to have been there, but it was important we did Other Stuff.  I was looking forward to taking a trundle on the new surface with CycleChatters in a few weeks, but, unfortunately, they had to change the date, and I can't go :'(

It's amazing seeing HHV brought back to life.
Getting there...

I gather Fixedwheelnut went yesterday and by all accounts had a jolly good time.

Note to self: really must make an effort to actually get down there next season.

I'm hoping to try a lap out at the Ride of the Falling Leaves.  Not sure I'll bother with the rest of the ride...

Certainly did :D excellent day and even took my 1956 Claud Butler for a spin round the track at the end of the day :)
