Speedy Racers and plain ole biking folks will go head to head in a stationary competition that pits two racers against each other to ride as fast as possible in the largest Goldsprints competition in PDX history.
Goldsprints races have long been popular in Portland, but they don’t happen that often. In the race, two bikes are fitted to rollers for fast paced fun and plenty of action. Goldsprints are known for their crowds of heckling, jeering and cheering bystanders and ridiculously entertaining antics.
VeloCult bike shop and bar is hosting this weekly showcase every Saturday at 7pm for six weeks, beginning on February 2.
There are prizes for spectators, including festival passes to the 11th Annual Filmed by Bike, and racers and anyone can compete. This event is the perfect excuse to hang out at VeloCult, known for their fine beers, pour-over coffee and walls lined with enticing bikes and vintage bike paraphernalia.
