Just read this on the internets…the guys from Open Bicycle are doing a spins series…looks like a lot of fun. If you are not familiar with the sport see video below.

We somehow ended up agreeing to put on some sprint races for Bacardi/42Below Vodka at some not-so-cycling-type venues for the next 6 weeks. There will be some free booze and probably copious flipped collars and “party tops” – come on out and beat some “brahs” on the rollers and give us some company!

There will be raffles for free track bikes- 25 in total- they’re essentially repainted IRO’s, I think, with decent parts. The 42Below people will be handing out other free schwag, as well…worth coming out if you have the time.

here’s the schedule:

July 9 & 30 : Hennessey’s, 25 Union Street. 8p-10p
July 10 & 17 : Saint, 90 Exeter Street. 11p-1a
July 11 & 18 : Market, 21 Broad Street. 10p-12a
July 20 & 27 : White Horse Tavern. 9p-11p
July 24 & 31 : Sanctuary, 189 State Street. 10p-12a
July 25 & Aug 15 : The Place, 2 Broad Street. 8p-10p
Aug 7 & 14 : Beer Garden, 734 E. Broadway, South Boston. 8p-10p
Aug 8 & 13 : The Point, 147 Hanover, 9:30p-11:30p

Tonight’s event is at Hennessey’s- its a Irish joint over by Faneuil Hall. Pop in if you’re free for some spinning and what will be, we think, an entertaining evening if nothing else!

This sounds like a lot of fun, I encourage everyone to go out and try/see this.
