Rocktown Roller-Rama

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Rocktown Roller-Rama

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

Location: Three Notch’d Valley Collab House – 241 E Market St, Harrisonburg, VA 22801 (right around the corner from Rocktown!)

Time: We will be set up a roller bike in the shop the week of the Roller-rama to get seed times. If you can’t make it before the event, we will have a chance for seed times on January 26th from 6-6:30pm. And if you’re still unable to make it for a seed time, no worries! You will still be able to participate.

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 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 2024!

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
