Announcing the 2010 RI VeloSprints Winter Series

Winter blues got you snowed under? Just think: this is only the beginning!  snowed in

We have a cure for those winter blues. Announcing, the RI VeloSprints Winter Series!
RI VeloSprints is Rhode Island’s winter series for cyclists, spinners, commuters and hipsters frustrated by Mother Nature’s cold shoulder!

RI VeloSprints is 500 metres of full out sprinting on rollers. We fix the forks to help keep you vertical as you challenge friends, enemies, other co-workers or folks you may have just met! There are multiple categories to address the needs of all of your mid-winter personas. The bravest are forming teams to share the therapeutic benefits of the series! Speaking of prizes, there will be nightly winners AND series Champions, crowned in March.

C1All of your blood, sweat and tears, your registration fees and a portion of beer sales supports the U.S. Open Cycling Foundation’s mission to empower a healthier, cleaner America through cycling AND also to support the work of the Providence Bike Coalition and the East Coast Greenway Alliance.

Registration for the 10 night series is $25 per individual or $75 for a team of up to five. There is a $5/night ride fee. For those who are commitment averse, there is a $10 one-nighter fee. At the end of the series you will receive a receipt for the total of your donation. Pre-register at or (search on velosprints), just show up for OUR first night on Monday, January 4.  We’ll start at 6:00!  McFadden’s (52 Pine St, Providence) has graciously agreed to host the entire series.

So, bring some friends and leave your lycra at home!

    How did it go? I was home coughing and couldn't make it.

    14 riders registered, about 14 races run, fun time had by all, so far as I can tell, very positive response from those who participated.
