    Ah, awesome, didn't realise it was kicking off again so soon... Looking forward to getting back on the track. Wonder whether the enthusiasm from the Olympics will have cooled by now?

    Shame really. Glasgow's managed to get the Commonwealth venue up, running and hosting events in advance of the Games... All this faff with the park around the venues is going to be the thing that gets in the way of just getting out on a bike!

    Not to piss on your cornflakes, but I think you might have got a bit jumbled...

    The North Park will begin to reopen from **late 2013**, providing a valuable area of open green space for the neighbouring communities of Hackney Wick and Leytonstone. It will be a place for jogging, kickabouts, children’s play and family picnics.

    Aye, but the main car park is HUGE. No need to block out that much space, especially when it wasn't even getting used. Either that or actually put up signs that say more than 'no spectator parking at velodrome', right at the entrance.

    Anyway, I digress. Great weekend, just a minor grumble.

    Anyone have any thoughts on the Boardman track bikes? Was thinking about getting the TK Comp as my first track ride, bringing it in via Wiggle.fr - wiggle.fr/velo-boardman-tk-comp/

    Had a great night on Friday... parking was utter bullshit though. Ended up ditching the car in a ropey-looking council estate round the back of the venue, despite the main car park being near enough empty.

    Great to see racing in the venue though, can't wait to get back and ride it again.

    Picked a hell of a day to finally move up to intermediates... Cold and windy. Dropped off at the very end, was totally frozen. Glad I did it before the winter though!

    Do the inter sessions carry on on Saturdays when everything else has stopped? I only ask as it's on the calendar for a few more weeks...
