At the turn of the century, pro bicycle racers barnstormed across the country racing head-to-head on indoor bicycle training rollers in Vaudeville productions. Bicycle messengers in large urban areas revived this style of racing in gritty bars during the 1980’s.

“Goldsprints” are head-to-head races on fork-mounted rollers (you don’t need to be able to balance on traditional rollers) for 300 meters (about 20 seconds for most people). We provide track bikes with flat-pedals and foot straps. You don’t bring your bike, and you don’t need cycling-specific equipment like cycling shoes. Costumes, heckling and participatory fun are strongly encouraged. The open category is for anyone. The elite category is for bike racers and weekend warriors.
