New indoor track in Indianapolis !

Next meeting is Nov 7 at steak and shake
4020 s east st

So moving along we have come this far.

We have a lease signed in hand on a 18,000 sf
25 ft ceiling building.

We have our Usabmx paper work in hand.

We have gate equiptment donated

We have two gates located and pending pick up.

We have a name for it compound 317 Bmx.

We have a consideral amount of lumber donated.

Now locating dirt.

Still along way to go.

The building is nice and the lease is for 5
Years only paying for the months we occupy
The building and the track will stay up when we are
closed.

Of coarse there are a few draw backs .

1. Restrooms need built or port o pots brought in.

2.Heat I need huge salamanders I guess.

Re: New indoor track in Indianapolis !

Hey Excalibur, is the track going to be made of dirt or plywood?  I've been looking all over for information on  building an indoor pump track.  I've got a local Park and Rec person interested, but I don't think they'd go for a dirt track because they want to be able to use the same space (a huge community center, almost like an aircraft hangar) for other things.  Ideally, it would be modular.


Marshall W. "Major" Taylor, one of America's greatest bicycle racers, on succeeding in sport and life: Don't try to "gyp." Don't be a pie biter. Don't keep late hours. Don't use intoxicants. Don't be a big bluffer. Don't eat cheap candies. Don't get a swelled head. Don't use tobacco in any form. Don't fail to live a clean life. Don't forget to play the game fair. Don't take an unfair advantage of an opponent. Don't forget the practice of good sportsmanship.
