Cyclocross coming to Lions Park!


Riding your bike through Lions Park has never been like this before! On Sunday, October 25th, Lions Park will be turned into one giant bicycle course when the park plays host to a day-long cyclocross.

Cyclocross is a fall/winter sport popular in Europe. In ‘cross, as it’s often called, you ride over grassy fields, pavement, wooded trails, steep hills and obstacles that sometimes require jumping off the bike! Races for senior categories are generally between 30 minutes and an hour long, with the distance varying depending on the ground conditions.

Racing begins at 10 AM and continues into mid-afternoon. A free race open to kids 10 and under will be held at noon: just bring your bike and a helmet!

Lions Park is just northeast of downtown at 516 Dennis Ave. Raleigh NC 27604. No rain date. Call 919-831-6995 the day of the event for cancellation info. The kids race is part of a full day of USA Cycling licensed races sponsored by Inland Construction/Back-to-Dirt racing team, see Held in partnership with City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation.
