On Friday the 13th, Providence’s Recycle-A-Bike program held a fundraiser in the form of roller races. There was an amazing turnout to test out the new setup that was created especially for this occasion. The rollers were setup on a small stage and had fork mounts bolted down to it. There was a wireless setup attached to the rollers that sent a signal to the laptop which projected the race progress graph onto the wall behind the riders. The software and wireless hookup for the rollers was created by Providence’s one and only Kipp Bradford. The whole Recycle-A-Bike staff came together to make this a fun night. Special thanks to Maggie for keeping everyone focused. And a very special thanks to all of the sponsors. Can’t wait to do it again!
