At this time I attended “HPV enjoyable day”, a particular once-a-year occasion at Hellyer Velodrome. A neighborhood couple organizes this, renting the velodrome after which inviting individuals to come back simply check out the velodrome or enter races. I did a bit of of every. I rode my electric-assist recumbent down the Coyote Creek path from Morgan Hill to the velodrome. I then rode on the velodrome for a number of laps through the open follow interval. That is enjoyable as I didn’t really feel assured on the banking at first however it got here again to me after a few laps. I used to be quickly having fun with going as much as the highest, working up a head of steam, then swooping all the way down to the underside line, simulating the flying begin of a 200-meter time trial.
The primary occasion was the time trial. I wasn’t blazingly quick however it felt nice and was a enjoyable expertise. There was a break after the time trial so I rode some extra laps as a cooldown. All the opposite occasions had been group rides, which I promised my spouse I might keep away from as a result of I’ve crashed at this velodrome previously. So I headed again. I used electrical help on the rides there and again, however rode unassisted on the velodrome. It was an excellent day, I loved the using, seeing quite a lot of unique bikes and trikes, and chatting with fellow individuals.
