First starting in 1951 and dubbed as "The World's Greatest College Weekend", the Little 500 is a track cycling race held each year at the end of April at Indiana University, Bloomington. It is held at Bill Armstrong Stadium on campus, and is attended by more than 25,000 fans each year. It has come to be known as Little 5 week, in which the entire week has festivities for the race in Bloomington, concluding with the Women's race on Friday and the Men's on Saturday.
The Pi Lambda Phi Indiana Alpha Theta bike team has some of our most dedicated brothers. Our riders conduct multiple workouts per week - riding hundreds of miles - all for the race in April where we may boast our Fraternity's excellence. They put in months of determination and effort in hopes to bring Pilam its first Little 500 trophy. Our riders maintain the highest standards of academics as well as athletics, while honoring our Fraternity's core values. Only a few brothers possess the skills and grit to join the bike team, and we appreciate their dedication everyday.
