    Roller Racing in Ottawa

    Hello everyone!

    I am not sure exactly where to put this post since it is a bit special.

    but check this out:

    That was a night to remember. A freaking riot to say the least. Old school rollers... brings the simple fun of bike racing to the people. We packed the pace, overloaded with beer drinking cyclists. The tavern/pub had its best night also! what a blast! we even got couple of pub regulars to try out the 500m. I can't wait to have next race next month.

    Sweet...haven't done that in almost 30 years Are those riders using some type of bike support? I saw an awful lot of body "english" going on that would have thrown some one from the rollers.

    the 500m had front fork support with fixed gear bikes with adjustable seat so anyone can go and try it out. the 1000m was free rollers and people had to use their bikes, but only one gear they could choose at the beginning of the race.
