Bike Derby a la 1992

We talked to John Petersen ’88, the Department Chair of Environmental Studies, today about the Bike Derby.  “Savagery is really the only good word for it.  Just savagery,” he said.  Then he sat back, shaking his head and repeating once more, “Savagery.”

He told us to check out a youtube video of it, and we think you should too.  It’s a valuable tidbit of Oberlin History.

Part 1 (and don’t forget Part 2 where the savagery intensifies)
