Criterium Detroit City set for July 9th

Plans are well underway for another USA Cycling race in Detroit this summer called… Criterium Detroit City.

Imagine Tiger Plaza at Comerica Park decked out with banners and flags, both sides of the street filled with thousands of screaming spectators ringing their race bells and cheering on their favorite cyclists as they battle it out lap after lap.

Our primary goals for the race are to promote cycling as an excellent activity for living a healthy lifestyle, recreation, exercise, and transportation and to promote the city of Detroit as vibrant, fun, entertaining and livable, to both city dwellers and especially those new to the city.

Erika Fulk is one of the race promoters. Fulk was very involved in event planning for the 2010 Tour de Troit, so we’re quite confident this will be another great cycling event in Detroit.

It looks like a great course, too.

Of course, we’d love to see this become an opportunity for Detroit’s youth to get a taste for competitive cycling — or just cycling in general.

Criterium Detroit City is also on Facebook.

The other USA Cycling race in the city of Detroit is the Mad Anthony cyclocross race at Fort Wayne.
