The community of East Point, just south of Atlanta, houses the Dick Lane Velodrome, an outdoor bike racetrack banked at a 36-degree angle that's one of the very few of its kind in the United States. Bike races at the velodrome are fascinating to watch and they have elaborate rules and names like The Snowball, the Madison, and the Miss and Out.
