The Indy Criterium will be blazing through Downtown Indy this July as thousands of spectators, cyclists and biking enthusiasts celebrate USA Cycling with a sanctioned race and festival. This family friendly event will be held Saturday, July 14th in University Park, Downtown Indy with proceeds benefiting Freewheelin’ Community Bikes, a local community organization that provides youth programming to encourage bike riding as an affordable alternative to high gas prices and leaving a large carbon footprint.
The Indy Crit is the organization’s third annual event, which allows cyclists to race through Downtown Indy streets in a figure eight course with the chance to win cash and prizes and share in a whole lotta fun. In fact, the Criterium is the largest USA Cycling race in Indiana. Preregistration lasts through July 12th so racers are encouraged to register early.
Indy residents and visitors will enjoy the event festival that offers plenty of live music, activities for kids, vendors and bike clinics. There’s even a wine and beer garden to make hanging out with friends a blast all while watching the race.
