Resurface

Herne Hill on a cold, crisp, sunny Saturday morning is a great way to clear your head and forget the busy work-week. They had resurfaced the track since I went last time, the start of the renovation of this historic velodrome. I went to watch the bikes as Atsuko enjoyed her British Military Fitness class in Dulwich Park this morning…

  1. Hi Ayako-san! Thanks for nice comment as always! Yes the lines are there to help enforce some regulations of track-racing. The large blue band is not really the track and undertaking on here is not allowed. The area between the white (track length line) and red (sprinter’s line) is the optimum distance and curve for cyclists to perform. The light blue line is used in Madison races where two-man teams hand-sling each other to build speed. When you see a track event with a lot of riders, you suddenly realise that the lines are so important to organise the group and avoid crashes.
