Dick Lane Velodrome
Bike Racing at Atlanta's Velodrome
Although the most famous bike races are along roads, track bike racing is starting to gain more recognition and is actually more entertaining for the spectator. The Dick Lane Velodrome in East Point is one of 26 in the United States and one of 20 that are outdoors. Set in the serene Sumner Park, the in field of the track actually contains a large oak tree and running creek. There are weekly races that are open to the public and it’s a thrill to watch bikers circle at 40+ MPH, sometimes nearly parallel to the ground.
