Cycling Road Bike Frame and Olympic Cycling Road Tickets


The more miles you put on your road bike, the more discerning you're likely to become about your bike's frame. For road cyclists, a strong yet light frame makes an enormous difference in the ride. Weight is key in climbing, descents, and flats, and a cheaper, heavier frame plays a direct role in slower times. When you're ready to move on up, make sure you get the frame that fits your riding, now and in the future.
In general, road bike frames come in four different materials: steel, aluminum, carbon fiber, and titanium. Steel is the least expensive and therefore the heaviest. It's a frame that you're likely to get in an off the rack bike between 300 and 1,000 dollars. Once you get up to the 1,000 dollar price break, aluminum is more common, as are carbon components. Titanium is considered the premium material and titanium frames can take you into the many thousand dollar price range. For many serious but amateur roadies, carbon fiber is a perfect plateau.
Like titanium and aluminum, carbon frames will not corrode. 
Like titanium, it can be 'tuned' for strength. The only problem with carbon fiber is that it is capable of breaking. Without the incredible strength of titanium, carbon does have its limits. When you're looking to upgrade your frame, make sure you choose the material that's going to suit you going forward. Ask the cycling buddies for their opinions, read a good forum online for road cyclists, and then check the models at your local bike shop so you know you're making an informed choice. Then enjoy the new speed and power you get from a great new frame.

BMX Bike and Olympic Cycling BMX Tickets


Though originally denoting a bicycle intended for BMX Racing, the term "BMX bike" is now used to encompass race bikes, as well as those used for the dirt, vert, park, street, flatland and BMX freestyle disciplines of BMX. BMX frames are made of various types of steel, and (largely in the racing category) aluminum. Cheaper, low end bikes are usually made of steel. Mid range bikes are mostly chromoly or high tensile steel, although the latter is noticeably heavier with respect to strength. High-performance BMX bikes use lightweight 4130 chromoly, or generation 3 chromoly.
The introduction and widespread popularity of the cassette hub has ushered in the use of smaller gearing on BMX bikes. Instead of the old 44/16 gearing found on almost all older BMX bikes, new bikes use gearing such as 36/13, 33/12, 30/11, 28/10, 25/9, and even 23/8, all of which have similar gear ratios of almost 2.8:1. Advantages of smaller gearing hubs include lighter weight, and more clearance when grinding. The free wheel hub is all but extinct due to several factors. The smallest freewheels that can be made is with 13 teeth, which is larger than most riders prefer. Also, they are less consistent than cassette hubs, and skip or jam up far more frequently.
On most freestyle, street jumping & street BMX bikes, the wheels have 36 spokes, with more aggressive riders using 48 spoke wheels, due to the extra strength afforded them. Race bike wheels are also usually 36 spokes, but wheels for the smallest racers sometimes as young as three years old can be built with 18 or 28 spokes. BMX Racing bike wheels vary in size, from 16" to 26" with 20" being the most popular. Dirt jumping and freestyle bike wheel sizes include 16" and 18" for younger, smaller riders, 20" for most other riders, and a few companies including Haro and Sunday offer 24" freestyle bikes for taller or older riders who feel cramped on a standard 20" BMX bike.
BMX started in the early 1970s when children began racing their bicycles on dirt tracks in southern California, drawing inspiration from the motocross superstars of the time. The size and availability of the Schwinn Sting Ray made it the natural bike of choice, since they were easily customized for better handling and performance. BMX racing was a phenomenon by the mid 1970s. Children were racing standard road bikes off-road, around purpose built tracks in California. The 1972 motorcycle racing documentary "On Any Sunday" is generally credited with inspiring the movement nationally in the US; its opening scene shows kids riding their Schwinn Stingrays off road. By the middle of that decade the sport achieved critical mass, and manufacturers began creating bicycles designed especially for the sport.
BMX Freestyle which, today, encompasses the Dirt, Vert, Park, Streets and Flatland disciplines was created by racers who enjoyed pushing the stylistic limits of what they could do on their bikes. Haro Bikes founder Bob Haro is popularly known as "The Father of Freestyle." BMX Freestyle is now one of the staple events at the annual Summer X Games Extreme Sports competition and the ETNIES backyard jam, held largely on both coasts of the United States. The popularity of the sport has increased due to its relative ease and availability of riding locations. At the games, Latvian Maris Strombergs and Anne Caroline Chausson of France were crowned the first Olympic champions in Mens and Women's BMX Racing, respectively. Many great BMX riders go on to other cycling sports like downhill such as Australian Olympian Jared Graves, former "golden child" Eric Carter, and youth BMX racer Aaron Gwin. Conversely, Mountain Bike racers sometimes cross over to BMX Racing, such as 2008 Olympic Bronze Medalist conor of the USA.

Hadleigh Farm and Olympic Cycling Mountain Bike Tickets


Hadleigh Farm is the venue for the mountain biking competition in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games and 2012 Paralympics Games and is located at Hadleigh within the borough of Castle Point, near Southern in the county of Essex.
Hadleigh Farm is owned by The Salvation Army and run as an educational working farm. It features a rare breed’s centre and tea room for visitors. The 700 acre farm was purchased in 1891 by General Booth as part of a plan to rescue the destitute from the squalor of London. Hadleigh Farm overlooks the Thames estuary to the south and adjoins Hadleigh Castle, built in the 1230s during the reign of King Henry III, and one of the most important late medieval castles in Essex, now preserved by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building. A portion of the mountain bike course crosses the adjacent Hadleigh Country Park, owned and managed by Essex County Council and a Site of Special Scientific Interest with special regard for invertebrates.
Hadleigh Farm was confirmed in 2008 as the venue for the mountain biking competition in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. The original proposed venue at Weald Country Park had been deemed insufficiently challenging by the International Cycling Union, who was described as being delighted with Hadleigh.  During the Olympic Games, temporary grandstands holding 3,000 people will be erected.
Plans for improving access to the site for the Olympics include widening of Castle Lane and Chapel Lane in Hadleigh. The site is approximately five miles from London Southern Airport.  It is as yet unknown what legacy will be left for mountain biking after the event. 
Hadleigh Farm is included within the "Essex Legacy" plans for regeneration in Essex. Cycling Mountain Bike is a major sport of Olympic Games.

The Velodrome and Olympic Cycling Track Tickets


In 2009, at the time work began on the construction of the velodrome, the estimated cost of that facility alone was £105 million. Work on the Velodrome was completed in February 2011. The Velodrome was the first Olympic Park venue to be completed. The roof is designed to reflect the geometry of cycling as well as being lightweight and efficient reflecting a bike. There is also a 360 degree concourse level with windows allowing people views of the Olympic Park. The Velodrome is energy efficient with roof lights reducing the need for artificial lights and natural ventilation reducing the need for air condition, rain water is also saved cutting the amount of water used. Designer Ron Webb who designed the Velodrome tracks for the Sydney and Athens Games was in charge of the design and installation of the track. The track was made with 56 km of Siberian Pine and 350,000 nails.
The Velodrome was officially opened by many successful British athletes including Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton. It is informally known as "The Pringle" due to its distinctive shape. It was shortlisted for the 2011RIBA Sterling Prize and won the 2011 Structural Awards Supreme Award for Structural Engineering. The venue will be used for the first time in competition during the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics in February 2012. The velodrome will also be used for the 2012 Paralympics.
The East way Cycle Circuit was demolished for the VeloPark before being merged with the new park. It was announced that along with the VeloPark there would be three new cycle circuits created around London. In early February 2007 the plans at the VeloPark / East way cycle centre were revised with no mountain bike course. By mid-February it was announced that Hog Hill would be the temporary relocation of the East way cycle centre. The promised cycle speedway track will not be built. In August 2011 it was announced that the road race course will be rerouted to allow more space and parkland after suggestions from Sport England and British Cycling. The course will now cross the River Lee and parkland linking up with other cycle routes in London.
The London Development Agency (LDA) has funded a new permanent road cycle circuit and mountain bike course at the Red bridge Cycling Centre, costing £5m. The London Borough of Red Bridge will be funding the facility up to the completion of the legacy London Velopark. Work is underway to identify an operator of Hog Hill beyond 2012. For the 2012 Summer Olympics, there will be five events for both men and women.  Olympic Cycling Track is a major sport of Olympic Games.

The Mall and Olympic Cycling Road Tickets


The Mall in central London is the road running from Buckingham Palace at its western end to Admiralty Arch and on to Trafalgar Square at its eastern end. It then crosses Spring Gardens, which was where the Metropolitan Board of Works and, for a number of years, the London County Council was based. It is closed to traffic on Sundays and public holidays, and on ceremonial occasions. The surface of The Mall is colored red which gives the effect of a giant red carpet leading up to Buckingham Palace. This color was obtained using synthetic iron oxide pigment from the Deans hanger Oxide Works, which was created using the Dean ox Process devised by head chemist Ernest Lovell. To make the Mall red was decision of MP David Eccles as minister of works.
The Queen Victoria Memorial is immediately before the gates of the Palace, whilst Admiralty at the far end leads into the Trafalgar Square. The distance from the railings at Palace to the Admiralty Arch is approximately 1 km. St. James's Park is on the south side of the Mall, opposite Green Park and St. James's Palace, on the north. Running off the Mall at its eastern end is the Horse Guards Parade, where the ceremony of Trooping the Color occurs.
The Mall was created as a ceremonial route in the early 20th century, matching the creation of similar ceremonial routes in other cities, such as Berlin, Mexico City, Oslo, Paris, St. Petersburg, Vienna and Washington D.C. These routes were intended to be used for major national ceremonies in the era of the nation state. As part of the development, a new fa├žade was constructed for Buckingham Palace, and the Victoria Memorial was erected. There exists a theory, possibly an urban myth, that in the event of an emergency or catastrophic event that might endanger the monarch and senior members of the government, the Mall can quickly be converted into a make-shift runway.
On VE Day 8 May 1945 his palace was the centre of British celebrations, with the King, Queen and the Princess Elizabeth, the future Queen, and Princess Margaret appearing on the balcony, with the palace's blacked-out windows behind them, to the cheers from a vast crowd in the Mall.
During state visits to the United Kingdom, the monarch and the visiting head of state are escorted in a state carriage up the Mall and the street is decorated with Union Flags and the flags of the visiting head of state's country. During the Golden Jubilee ceremonies of Queen Elizabeth II in 2002, over one million people packed the Mall to watch the public displays and the appearance of the British Royal Family on the palace balcony.
The Mall is host venue of many Olympic events in Summer Olympics 2012. You can also enjoy all events and sports of Olympics 2012 live.

BMX Track London and Olympic Cycling BMX Tickets


The London Velopark is a cycling centre which was built in Layton in east London, United Kingdom. It will serve as one of the 'Big Five' permanent Olympic and Paralympics venues for the2012 Games. The Velopark is situated at the northern end of London's Olympic Park. 
The Velopark features a Velodrome and BMX racing track, which will be used for the Games as well as having a one mile road racing course and a mountain bike track. The park replaces the East way Cycle Circuit which was demolished to make way for it. The facilities built for the Olympics were constructed between 2009 and 2011. The first event to be held in the Velopark was the London round of the 2011 UCI Super cross BMX World Cup series.
In February 2005 plans were announced for a £22 million VeloPark. Sport England would invest £10.5 million, Lee Valley Regional Park Authority £6 million and the Major of London and Transport of London would invest £3 million and £2.5 million respectively. The site was to be 34 hectors on the northern end of the proposed Olympic Park, next to the A12. The park would include a Velodrome seating 1,500 people which would be increased to 6,000 if London's bid for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games was successful. In addition the site would also have an international competition BMX circuit, a BMX freestyle park, cyclo-cross/cross-country course mountain bike course and an outdoor cycle speedway track. The facilities would be used by international riders as well as those learning to ride. It was estimated that the park would attract 88,000 users a year, replacing the East way Cycle Circuit. East way Cycle Circuit opened in 1975, it was the first purpose built road cycling venue in Britain. The facility closed in September 2006 to make way for London's VeloPark. The velodrome will become the third 250 m covered track in Great Britain. In September 2008 plans for the VeloPark were revealed, which were chosen with help from Chris Hoy. However by March 2007, the VeloPark was revealed to be only a third of its original size, rescaled from 34 to 10 hectors. The decrease in the size of the site led to users of the East way cycle circuit to protest to the Mayor of London.
The outdoor BMX racing track will also have a spectator capacity of 6,000. Work began on its construction in March 2011. After the games the seating will be removed and the track will be reconfigured to accommodate all abilities. The first competition on the venue was the test event for the Olympic Games, a round of the 2011 UCI Super cross BMX World Cup series. The track for men is 470 meters long and features a berm jump, an S bend transfer, a box jump and a rhythm section in the final straight. The women's course is 430 meters long featuring three jumps in the opening straight and a tunnel before like the men's including a rhythm section in the final straight. It has been called one of the most challenging BMX tracks to date. The track also features an 8 meter high starting ramp and was designed by the UCI with the aim of pushing the boundaries of the sport. 14,000 cubic meters of soil was used to build the track. After the Super cross world cup event, Shanaze Reade called for changes to the track. She stated that the track was on the limit if the wind changed. Sarah Walker echoed Reade's calls stating that the track could get ugly on a windy day.
In preparation for the 2012 Summer Olympics, in 2010 the Dutch National Olympic Committee commissioned a replica of the planned BMX track at their National Sports Centre Papendal. It came into use in March 2011, ahead of the handover of the London Velopark BMX venue.  Cycling BMX is a major sport of Olympic Games.

Mountain Bike Frame and Olympic Cycling Mountain Bike Tickets


A bicycle frame is the main component of a bicycle, on to which wheels and other components are fitted. The modern and most common frame design for an upright bicycle is based on the safety bicycle, and consists of two triangles, a main triangle and a paired rear triangle.
For ride comfort and better handling, shock absorbers are often used; there are a number of variants, including full suspension models, which provide shock absorption for the front and rear wheels; and front suspension only models which deal only with shocks arising from the front wheel. The development of sophisticated suspension systems in the 1990s quickly resulted in many modifications to the classic diamond frame. Recent mountain bicycles with rear suspension systems have a pivoting rear triangle to actuate the rear shock absorber. There is much manufacturer variation in the frame design of full suspension mountain bicycles and different designs for different riding purposes.
