There are rain chances for IU’s big bike race this weekend. Keep checking the Bloomington forecast for updates. I think the biggest threat will be Saturday afternoon and evening.
The Little 500 is the largest collegiate bike race in the United States. Riders compete in four-person teams in separate races for men and women around a quarter-mile track.
More than 25,000 people attend the races every year, with the proceeds used for working student scholarships at IU. The 2008 races allowed the Student Foundation to give away more than $35,000 in scholarships.
