Gold Sprints courtesy of Axis Events
As opposed to traditional roller racing, where riders have to balance, Goldsprints use fixed gear bikes mounted by their forkstands so that the riders don't have to balance, only pedal as fast as they can. We will be hosting races in the store and giving away prizes to the fastest sprinters!
Central City Brewing Co. will be providing delicious beers and answering any and all brewery questions
Milano Coffee will be hosting an Espresso Bar with a Milano Barista making your favourite beverage
In honor of this event MEC is giving a donation to Cycling BC
