Downtown Evanston will be bustling all day for the annual Evanston Grand Prix presented by Turin Bicycle. Get up close and personal with Olympics-level cyclists as they careen around the city streets clocking in at more than 30 mph.
Come early and visit the local shops on the course which starts at Fountain Square. Choose from 70+ restaurants — many featuring outdoor dining — or relax in the 312 Urban Wheat Ale Beer Garden, ALL along the racecourse. Enjoy a dance party and bring the kids for their own bicycle race on Sunday afternoon before the pro series begins. But don't miss the main event: Pro Races Begin at 4:00 pm.
Evanston hosts Stage 10 of the U.S.'s largest multi-category cycling event, the 17-day-long Point Premium Root Beer International Cycling Classic™ bicycle race. After a full morning of serious amatuer races, the men's and women's pro cyclists come on the scene starting at 4pm. You'll be an arms-length from world-class, Olympic-level athletes competing for cash prizes and top honors.
