Since the mid-1990s, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il has declared it illegal for women to ride bicycles. Since 70% of households own a bike, there’s undoubtedly a lot of illegal riding, as bikes for transport and to aid the commerce at local markets is well-known. Enforcement of Kim Jong Il’s purported ruling banning females on bikes is said to be uneven, and involves a fine, rather than directly jail time. Bicycles were also banned up until the ’90s in the capital city of Pyongyang.
With seating for 10,000 and parking for 20,000 (go figure) the Velodrome would host all of the cycling competition on the Michigan State Fairgrounds. Detroit failed against Mexico City. Would the Olympic Games saved Detroit? Probabaly not! But one things for sure, NO OLYMPIA Berlin in 2024! Berlin needs many other things! Nuff said…
