The Kingsbridge Armory, which was almost turned into a shopping mall until the workers started making demands about being paid a living wage, is going to host a Mexican-style rodeo later this month!

Yesterday The National Cycling Association [NCA] unveiled its rendering for a world class velodrome inside the cavernous Kingsbridge Armory in the Bronx.
The NCA hopes to hold "a major 6-day race over six nights," combining "live bands, BMX exhibitions," and attract a few thousand people and build support for a Kingsbridge Armory Velodrome.
