Roller racing this Saturday!

Rapha are hosting a roller racing competiton this Saturday, 17th November on Old Street. According to them themselves:

The evening will feature a four-way clash between teams of bicycle couriers, cycle journalists, media folk and a ‘dark horse’ Dutch team made up of unnamed riders. The 500 metre sprints will be staged in a boxing ring, pitching rider against rider for added intensity and drama. The night also includes a ‘Have-a-Go’ Race: the chance for anyone to test their skills on the rollers with the best times going through to a final on the main stage.

Last time, back in February, this took place at Shoreditch Town Hall and was great fun. I liked what they were aspiring too, it was just a shame the music sucked – where was the big band?

Anyway this time round its at The Classic Car Club (what’s Rapha’s thing with classic cars?!), 250 Old Street EC1. Tickets are £10 on the door or £8 in advance from the Rapha site. Apparently some of the money is for charity. See you there!
