Little 500: Historically known as a bike race taking place in Bloomington, Indiana. The race takes place on the track that surrounds the soccer field and each team (of four bikers) must complete 200 laps. Although that is the main reason for the funfilled weekend known as Little 5, it is also just an excuse for Indiana University students to party. Many artists come to perform for the students and the many visitors they may have staying with them for the weekend. Many IU students have bragged to me about how great this weekend really is, and I finally experienced it for myself this year. I must say, it wasn’t a let down. However, the actual bike race was won by the fraternity Beta Theta Pi. One team member in particular lives in my hometown and is, for the moment, the “talk of the town”.
