“Going nowhere faster than the speed of light”

Yup, it’s that time again. The Old Spokes Home is throwing a series of goldsprints races in Burlington, Vermont with the first coming up on the 22nd at The Monkey House (Winooski).

Its time for some Mad Dashes. Spring approaches; get the blood flowing! Picture two single speed bikes set up on stationary rollers, and two racers going head to head in a 250m, 500m, and 2,000m races. Speeds and times simultaneously projected during each race. A wild event for racers and spectators alike, registration is $5 and will be from 6:30pm – 7pm. Races begin at 7pm. Prizes will be awarded for racers and fans alike from the Old Spokes Home and Maglianero, as well as drink specials from the Monkey House.

This is the first race of 3 races we will be hosting. All racers are entered into a drawing for a grand prize to be awarded at the final event regardless of placement. Race all 3 events and you get 3 chances at the grand prize. Free Bass will be providing listening pleasure after the races, check out the Monkey House website for details. Keep in mind that these are real bikes, wear or bring appropriate footwear (sneakers) and clothing, and come out ready to ride, ready to cheer, and ready for a good time.
