I just finished a 1.5 hour ride in 32 degree F and 18 mph crosswind. All the while, dreaming of doing an indoor training session in 71 degrees on the velodrome.
I remember when Boulder was whinning about not having a velodrome at all.
I remember when it was announced that some one was actually going to build a track there. The buzz was so great that with the help of the web, the excitement went all accrossed the country.
I rememeber when in December, the excitement was soo great that it was hard to contain it....
Now for the most part, all I read on this forum is whinning about this or that. Most are valid complaints....
But remember, it is a learning curve for all involved. This business model has never been tried before.... They are trying this and trying that, to serve you the customer. At the end of the day, they also need to make a profit. if you have a concern, then get in contact with the owners, dont just go public on this forum trashing them for this or that.
Remember when you were excited about the prospect of a track in Boulder, well, be part of the solution and not the problem. Dive back into that excitement and contribute to the solution to what ever the perceived problem is.
The folks at Boulder Indoor Velodrome will work the bugs out of a lot of things, just look at the progress in 1.5 months. Once the dust settles. Things will smooth out. Every one will be happier for it. Just have some patients.
There is a guy down in San Antonio that is watching what is happening in Boulder.... He is a former trackie and wants to put together a similar business model. If all he sees are whinners, will he want to take the risk.... Will others want to risk it in Boulder/Denver?
Blessed are the flexible, for they are not easily broken.
Give it a little time, the bugs will get worked out. Riders, experience level will increase, every bodies comfort levels will get better....
I wish I were there to use the facility....
Keep em spinning and the rubber side down.
