A crew of Lincolnites went up to Omaha last night for the Green Sprints by Green Street Cycles. Wow, it sure was fun. These sprint events are a great melting pot of all that is good in the local cycling scene. Definitely a bike culture experience that all cyclists should embrace. Last night's event was very well organized and attended. Great to see folks that I haven't seen in a long time.
As far as the actual sprint is concerned, the fast twitch fiber folks dominate. The bikes have virtually no resistance so it's all about turning the cranks over as fast as ya can. It's amazing how shelled you are after going balls to the wall for 500 meters.
Kudos to Green Street and all the participants/spectators. There are several more Sprint events lined up this Winter by Green Street as well as the KC Sprint crew. If ya haven't checked one out yet put that on your to do list!
