FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MAD DASHES INDOOR BICYCLE RACING SERIES RETURNS TO BURLINGTON- WITH A TEAM AND POINTS RACING TWIST!
Vermont Goldsprints is pleased to announce Mad Dashes, the Burlington area's winter bicycle racing series. Think you're fast? Come on out and see. The bikes are stationary- so no cycling experience is necessary to participate- and the races are mercifully short- think 15-20 seconds!
This years' Mad Dashes is a "brewery tour," with a series of head-to-head races scheduled for the Switchback and Magic Hat breweries and a grand finale race in April at ArtsRiot. Sign-up for races will start around 4:30PM on each date and racing will begin shortly thereafter. Races are scheduled for 11/5/15, 1/7/16, and 3/3/16 at Switchback, 12/3/15 and 12/17/15 at Magic Hat, and on 4/7/16 at ArtsRiot.
In addition to the normal "who's the fastest?" type of racing, there will also be a season-long "points race," with points awarded for showing up on your bike, and for introducing a friend to the Dashes! Season-long points winners will be in the running for a prize package including items from Untapped Maple, Lumos Helmets, and others! Create and compete as a team! Up to six individuals can form a team and compete collectively for a team prize- bring your friends!
Racing is $25 for the season for an individual, $99 for the season for a team of up to six riders, or $5 individual to race for the night. Proceeds go to bring the goldsprints racing experience to children while building their enthusiasm for bicycling in Vermont and beyond.
