A Beloved Tradition Since 1961…and a New Tradition in 2019

nevada city classic2019 marks the 59th anniversary of the Nevada City Cycling Classic, the second oldest continuously running bicycle race in the country. 2019 also marks year three of the revitalization of this iconic Nevada City event.

For only the third time in history, the Nevada City Classic will be moved off the traditional Father’s Day date to the weekend. The date change allows the Chamber of Commerce to address a number of issues that were identified as factors to dwindling community support and engagement as well as falling race participation numbers.

Not only has the date been changed, but the course for 2019 will go back for the 2nd year to the original that was designed by event founder Charlie Allert in 1961. Instead of riders going all the way to the bottom of Broad St., they will turn left onto N. Pine St., cross Commercial St. and proceed past the Courthouse and the relocated start/finish at N. Pine & Church streets before merging back to the course most people are familiar with at York & N. Pine streets.

2019 will continue to build on changes from 2017. The 3rd Annual Nevada City Mile running race that takes place on the same route as the bike race will be on Sunday at 11:15am.
