Saturday, May 12, come to downtown Muskegon for the Port City Crit, hosted by the Port City Criterium! It will be a fun filled day of high intensity cycling races along a 0.8 mile circuit through the city streets. Come and check out the one of the best venues for the newest race on the Michigan Cycling Calendar. A vibrant downtown environment provides the backdrop for this counter clockwise course with a short kicker and fast finishing stretch.
Criteriums are short, closed circuit races, usually under one mile in length and consist of many laps. These races usually last from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the skill level of the competitors. Imagine it like a NASCAR race on bicycles, where you are always close to the spectators and fans as you race around the circuit. There is a neutral pit in these courses that you can go to just in case you have a flat tire or mishap. Challenging, fun, and you usually don’t have to venture that far from your car!
