Last year my wife and I went to the PDW warehouse. PDW stands for Portland Design Works. I shouldn't need to tell you PDW is located in Portland. My friend Dan and his girl run the joint and were graciously hosting a party.
Dan had recently obtained a velodrome called Circulus from a guy who knows how to speak quietly in a library in Los Angeles. This is what the track looked like before Dan picked it up in Los Angeles:
Dan flew to L.A. and loaded it into this truck. I took this picture:
Here's the track in pieces. I also took this picture:
This is Dan. I took this picture, too.
After posing for these pictures and drinking two adult beverages with me, Dan returned to his warehouse in Portland and assembled the Circulus.
Dan's a good fella. Here's the PDW (Portland Design Works) website: http://www.ridepdw.com/
