The old town crit - an afternoon criterium Saturday, through the streets of old town Traverse City! Imagine the thrill of a criterium race roaring down historic streets in the heart of Traverse City… like a traditional European race, the course passes over a short section of cobblestone! 484 S Union St, Traverse City, MI 49684
The Criterium Race at 9:00am on Saturday, June 15th, puts riders on a closed course that will twist through the city streets and neighborhoods of Old Town Traverse City. This event is the perfect spectator sport as it offers a front seat to watch the cyclists roar by in close range. The excitement comes with watching the technical abilities of the riders as they sprint for prizes and fly around tight corners.
Also this year, during the Criterium, Cherry-Roubaix will be offering the Kids Fun Ride as well as the Cruiser Classic Relay. The Kids Fun Ride will start at 12:30 pm and registration is free. Children must be registered by 12:00 pm on Saturday, June 15th. This ride offers children a healthy way to have fun and promote cycling for future races. The hilarious Cruiser Classic will consist of 4 person relay teams working together, passing cherry pies on their cruiser bikes, to win the first place prize often in costume or on a themed team!
Prize award for the top 3 finishers in each category. Prizes to be announced.
