I love Floyd because of, rather than in spite of, its complete lack of course features—it is dead flat with wide, sweeping corners that don’t exactly require you to know how to turn a bike well. The relatively regular oceanside wind, and a few potholes, tend to be the only obstacles. Floyd is as close as a road race comes to a long scratch race on the track. Because of this, Floyd is good.
