Nevada City Bicycle Classic Jun 15

Bike Race
The 54th Annual Nevada City Bicycle Classic will be held on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15, 2014, in historic downtown Nevada City.

The Nevada City Classic is one of the premiere sporting events in the Sierra foothills, the largest and oldest bike race on the West Coast, and the second-oldest race in the nation.

Historic Nevada City is draped with flags and bunting and provides a colorful backdrop as cyclists whiz through the downtown area, spokes flashing and crowds cheering. Several thousand spectators attend the traditional Father’s Day event.

Senior and professional riders representing top U.S. cycling teams are expected to race in the men’s 90-minute main event. Women’s, Junior’s and Master’s races also are planned. Action begins at 1 p.m. and is usually complete by about 6:30 p.m.

T-Shirts will be available for sale on race day, or contact the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce at (530) 265-2692.
