Roller Racing is coming to Denver!

The very exciting "sport" of roller racing is coming to Denver March 20th at the Handlebar & Grill. What is roller racing, honestly, I've only witness this type of event on youtube videos so my exposure is limited. There are many different ways to run a roller race but in general you have 2 or more bikes set up on trainers and with the resistance set not very high this forces the riders to compete with extremely high cadence, image riding down Mount Evens on a fixie which has a 42x18 on it! OUCH!

These events are very common in Portland Oregon area where the cycling culture is radically different than the Denver area.

Details on the Event
