Starting Tonite: Tuesday Nite Races at the Velodrome are back!

New seasons are upon us. Starting tonite, Tuesday nite races at the San Diego Velodrome are back! Every Tuesday nite from spring to summer, you can catch races for free beginning at 6:30pm and ending around 8ish. For a schedule of the evening visit the San Diego Velodrome's website.

Last year, Matt Lingo put together this short video of a Tuesday nite race:

Before the races, Nathan aka BabyNate who bartends for the North Park bar Toronado, is organizing a new pre-TNR special for cyclists. Every Tuesday from 3 - 6pm, cyclists and only cyclists who ride to Toronado will be able to purchase pints of draft beer for $3. Toronado (4026 30th st. & Lincoln) has about 35 quality beers on tap, so you're bound to find a drink you'll enjoy.

Nate mentioned in a personal conversation that he may only offer the special for cyclists who ride to the bar w/ a helmet. Not sure if that will be the case tonite. If you're a 'yay' or 'nay' on that, let Nate know in person. He's looking to get feedback from bar goers on how to improve the nite.

Either way, ride safe and sober.
