LB Gold Sprints at CSULB

Anyone going to do it? I'm planning on it. I'm not one for spinning like a mad man to be honest. Got to hop on the trainer and start beating myself up and doing some intervals.

Basically they have fixed gears, forks are mounted, rear wheel is on rollers and it's hooked up to a computer with a projector and shows the two riders progress. There's a video on the link below. To be honest it's more of a fixed gear crowd but everyone is pretty cool with roadies/track guys, spandex and all.

Also the Nugget on campus is a bar/restaurant that is the only place on campus that sells alcohol. For those that prefer to drink while cycling.

Here's more info:
