I will be spending some time in NY soon and wanted to know if anyone can recommend either a good velodrome that has open race nights, or any winter Crits or Road Races open to non USA cycling members in the NY area, so I can make a decision about what bike to bring...failing that....even if someone has any info on the alley cat scene

Any direct experience would be greatly appreciated!

spokepost.com does a great job listing most of the races that occur in the Northeast part of the United States.

Brooklyn always seems to have weekly races going on, never participated in any of them. I'm pretty sure Queens also has a velodrome racing-check out August 11 date, location Flushing, NY.

Also if you can get out to the Finger Lakes region (Syracuse, Rochester area) there is awesome riding and racing out there.
