Are the bicycles ridden at the Velodrome different from a normal street bicycle? Absolutely. They are fixed-gear bikes with NO brakes. A fixed-gear bicycle (or fixed-wheel bicycle, commonly known in some places as a fixie) is a bicycle that has a drivetrain with no freewheel mechanism—think: no coasting—that's ridden without brakes. A fixed gear bike can be ridden marginally safely because the pedals are locked to the rear wheel in both directions, so locking up your legs can slow down the rear wheel. This means that when the back wheel turns, the pedals are always turning. A track bike has no brakes because braking would cause a pile up. Don’t ask me more than that about these bikes. I have watched them, I have read about them, and I have talked with riders and I still don’t understand it; but they make it work and it is a fun sport to watch.

“I feel the need – the need for speed.” Located in the heart of Balboa Park’s Morley Field Athletic Complex, the San Diego Velodrome is the resource for bicycle track racing in the greater San Diego area. One of three velodromes in the Southwestern United States, the San Diego Velodrome is a premiere training and racing destination. Development programs are tailored for riders of all ages, skills, and abilities. The San Diego Velodrome offers one of the longest race schedules in the US, and the San Diego Velodrome Association fosters grass-roots racers through National and Olympic-level riders. Constructed in 1976, the San Diego Velodrome flourishes through the management of the San Diego Velodrome Association. With 28 degree banked corners, this 333.3 meter (364.5 yds) oval track is a recreational and racing resource unlike anything else in Southern California.

Every evening from the middle of April until the middle of September, the San Diego Velodrome is host to a premier Night Racing series. These fast-paced races feature the fastest, most skilled, and experienced riders. With speeds up to 40 miles-per-hour, there's never a dull moment on the track and there are bleachers for the fans and it's free to watch.
