Welcome to the Rocktown Roller-rama!

A friendly head-to-head competition to find out who has the fastest leg speed around!

Held at the Three Notch’d Brewing Harrisonburg Collab House (just around the corner from Rocktown Bicycles), the Rocktown Roller-rama is an evening of non-stop fun!

This event is held in February each year, so keep your eyes out for the date of the Rocktown Roller-rama 2020!

Our 2019 event was featured on the Washington DC news! For the full story and video, click HERE.

  • What is a roller race?

    • 250m all-out sprint on fixed gear bikes attached to steel bases

    • Simple head-to-head race. Winner moves on to next round. We use a bracket system.

    • Times range from 10sec to 20sec

    • Once a rider gets up to speed, it becomes a race to see who has the fastest legs, not necessarily the strongest muscles

    • We remove the front wheel and bolt the bikes to the rollers, no need to balance

    • Leave your spandex at home, this is a party first, bike race second :)

  • Prizes

    • Prizes are awarded to the top three women and top three men of the night

    • Last year, every racer got a limited edition Roller-rama sticker. We’ll see what Rocktown Ken has in store for racers in 2020!

  • Seeding/setting up brackets

    • Come by Rocktown Bicycles the week before the event to lay down a seeding run on one of our roller bikes

    • If you do not stop by before, you will have to lay down a seed time at Three Notch’d between 5 and 6 pm the night of the event.

    • Seed times help us line all of the racers up for the evening’s event
