Velodrome Proposed in Baltimore City

From the Daily Record:

<img width="108" height="73" align="left" src="" alt="">As if his plan to turn an industrial waterfront in Southwest Baltimore into a &quot;second downtown&quot; was not grand enough, developer Patrick Turner thinks a new velodrome would be the perfect capstone to that project.

If Turner has his way, however, Baltimore will get one. He wants to build a velodrome as part of the massive project he is planning on the shores of the Middle Branch, a finger of the Patapsco River just two miles south of the Inner Harbor. A velodrome is an arena with banked tracks made specifically for bicycle racing, best known for its function in Olympic contests. Amateurs can ride public tracks for recreational purposes, but relatively few such arenas exist in the United States.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
