The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
This Mass Avenue Criterium will be held downtown this Saturday. There will be racing all day, starting with a kids race at 1:00 P.M. At 7:00 PM, just before the big finale, there will be a 20 minute fixed gear race. The final race of the day will be a 90 minute mens race with $1,900 in prize money up for grabs. There are numerous restaurants around the course, including the Rathskeller and Nine Irish Brothers. The Bier Brewery Beer Garden is located on the outside of turn 1, offering good refreshment and a good view of the race.
Here's a video showing some of the action from the 2015 event:
