Two bikes on rollers. Side by side. Going the same pre-set distance in a head-to-head timed ride, usually under 20 seconds. That's goldsprints. And this is Vermont Goldsprints.
This started in 2013 because I wanted to see more awesome bike stuff happen in Vermont, even in the winter when my friends and I weren't getting together to ride as much. What began as group trainer rides in an after-hours coffee bar led to me buying a goldsprints rig from a local bike shop- and resurrecting their local goldprints series, called MAD DASHES. I run Mad Dashes every winter.
I also brought the bikes to events- farmers' markets, open streets, and safety days. And I discovered something awesome: Goldsprints is a great way to get people of all shapes and ages, including kids, on bikes and moving! It's a compact and portable setup and we can do it anywhere.
I want to bring goldsprints to more people- to put bikes in unpredictable places. I want to get people as jazzed about bikes as you and I already are.
Maintenance, web hosting, and insurance aren't free, and this is just a personal project of mine. I fund it out of pocket. I want to make it self-sustaining. I need your help.
How? A couple of ways:
What about hosting a Mad Dashes night in the Burlington area, or providing some of your product as a prize?
Pay me to bring goldsprints to you. I'll bring goldsprints to your next trade show booth, employee team-building event, product launch, or really anything you can think of where you'd like people to be engaged, moving, energized, and returning over and over to see you and to spin those pedals and rack up a winning time! Let's talk!
Thanks for reading this.
