  • The Old Spokes Home Presents: MAD DASHES

    Hey everyone, we’ve been off the map for more than a minute now, but I’d like to let everyone know that we’re back and swinging full-force right now. We had some back-end issues with the wordpress, but hopefully things are worked out at this point. Speaking of which, this post has nothing to do about us.

    The point here is that The Old Spokes Home’s MAD DASHES series is starting TONIGHT 6:30at the Monkey House in Winooski.


    Head over to the Old Spokes Facebook for all the details and dates. Here’s a little info about how we’re doing things:

    “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 free and will be from 6:30pm – 7pm. Preliminary races begin at 7pm and finals go off at 8pm. Prizes are awarded nightly for racers and fans alike, as well as drink specials from Switchback.

    This is the first race of a 6 race series. All racers are entered into a drawing for a grand prize to be awarded at the final event regardless of placement. Race all 6 events and you get 6 chances at the grand prize. There will be live music after the races at 9pm, 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.”

    I hope to see a great turn-out tonight! I’ll be a bit late (as I’m graduating this semester and have obviously been swamped with night-class) but come out to Winooski, say hey to Hunt and Chris, spin those legs and grab a beer from Switchback!
