The Kickstand Classic is a bike race for riders of all levels on any kind of bike.

Similar to a 5K running race, Kickstand Classic is a bike race designed for everyone, not just elite cyclists. Test your mettle and your power on the pedals in this chip timed bike race.

 

Registration opens July 10th, 2017

New for 2017, Kickstand Classic allows kids under 15 years of age to ride in the Sunday Funday wave!  

Spots will be on a first come first serve basis



Choose Your Wave!

Enter the Speed Demon Wave powered by SRAM, if you are a confident cyclist in any riding situation. You may have participated in group road rides, road races, or triathlons in the past. Your average speed for the race would be 15-17+ miles per hour, and only the 19 mile course is available in this wave. Drafting permitted in Speed Demon Wave only

Ride with confidence in the Middle of the Road Wave if you consider yourself strong on a bike but generally don’t ride as fast as the cyclists you see on group road rides or who zip past you on the trail.  Your bike is tuned up and ready to go when you are. Your average speed for the race would be around 13-15 miles per hour. Choose to ride 10, 14.5 or 19 miles.

Enjoy the ride in the Sunday Funday Wave. You are a recreational cruiser who generally does not ride more than one hour at a time and mostly rides on trails.  You’re excited to push yourself a bit in a safe environment and see how it goes. You’re curious about your speed in the race, but would participate even if this weren’t a timed event. Parents and children are welcome to ride as little or as much of the 19 mile course. Your average speed for the race would be under 10-12 miles per hour. Choose to ride 10, 14.5 or 19 miles.
