Bicycle racing season has reached full swing at the Marymoor Velodrome in Redmond, drawing crowds of cycling enthusiasts to the park each Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening.
The velodrome has hosted seasonal bicycle racing events at Marymoor since 1975. The facility's Friday Night Racing series is a summertime tradition for many Seattle-area fans.
Admission to the velodrome is free every night except Fridays, when spectator tickets are $5 for adults (under 16 is free). The velodrome's beer garden begins serving at 7 p.m. each Friday.
The Marymoor Grand Prix, set for July 20-21, will bring some of the country's top cyclists to Redmond as part of the 2012 USA Cycling National Track Calendar.
