I love when places like this get saved. Detroit is a city full of them, abandoned buildings with much history just rotting away.

Bicycle's are fun too. All one needs to do is fit an oversize sprocket, something like a 12 to 16 incher, a push start and away you go reaching speeds you never thought possible....if you can stay upright. You never know, the "mower gang" as they liked to be called, might make a new class for speed records. It may turn into something popular and they can bring back the glory days of a stayer and motorcycle pacer.

Having said that, that particular place in Detroit looks a little too dangerous for that sort of thing. I'd much prefer to race the boards of the '10s and '20s.

They still race like this in Belgium...Derny racing. I tried it once in Boston, it's the same as pacing behind a car.

You can really get moving!
