Fondos, Criterium Racing and Live Music at Bailey Park

It’s a full day of cycling fun!  Our Fondos will depart from Bailey Park in the morning.  Pick from two road distances and two greenway / gravel distances.  The racing will heat up all afternoon with the famed WS Cycling Classic men’s and women’s races capping off the action.  We’ll have food trucks and a beer garden (for adults 21+) all afternoon.  Make sure to stick around for the FREE concert into the night!
