We've completed four test runs at two separate locations. Ground softness/smoothness really dictates the ride experience and length of races folks are willing to do. I measured out a 25m rope with a loop at one end that ties around my handlebars. With my bike on the ground, I measure out the first semicircle, mark 50m between center points and measure out the second semicircle. That comes out to roughly a 260m track with 50m straights.

As far as races, we've had fun doing 1 lap TTs, eliminations, madison kilos, and team sprints. For other folks who run these- what other short-distance races have you found that work well?

Thanks @1incpa for all your help with the technical logistics!
