The Little 500 is a bicycle race held annually at Bill Armstrong Stadium on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Riders compete in teams of four, racing relay-style for 200 laps (50.98 miles) along a quarter-mile cinder track. Money raised by the event goes towards a scholarship fund for working IU students.
