It’s early Sunday morning after the final Saturday night of Penn State’s Spring semester. On frat row one would expect to see all the walk-of-shamers making their way back one more time before the summer; but instead something quite different is happening.

Scores of cyclists have lined up behind the start line ready to participate in Penn State’s Frat Row Criterium 2013, a 1K, 6-turn race around frat row.
