The Encino Velodrome, hidden away between Little League fields and the Los Angeles River in the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Center, is an appealing mix of high-tech and homespun. The cyclists, some of them world-class competitors, race with the latest in lightweight and aerodynamic equipment. But the velodrome also retains the feel of a small-town baseball club. Velodrome members mow the grass, sweep the track and do the general maintenance with a minimum of support from the city.

"If we use too much water they'll just cut us off and throw us out," said Robert Holtby, the secretary-treasurer of the gardening association at a four-acre site tucked into a little-noticed corner of Van Nuys Airport.
