The 2nd annual Kickstand Classic will take place on Sunday, 10/1, and yet again, no spandex required! Racers are electronically timed and grouped with people of similar abilities on a car-free course in downtown Bartlett. Everyone is welcome!
You start and end on Main Street, riding two, three or four laps (you choose) around the 4.8 mile race loop. Ride as fast as you can for this 10, 14.5 or 19-mile race or choose a calmer pace. A rest and water stop is available at Leiseberg Park on the north side of the route.
Start in waves with people of similar biking speeds. Each wave will also have a slow released start. Your timing chip will record your individual start and finish times, as well as your lap pace.
Speed Demon Wave powered by SRAM: 6:30 to 6:45 a.m. (drafting permitted in this wave only)
Middle of the Road Wave: 7:45 to 8 a.m.
Sunday Funday Wave: 9:30 to 9:50 a.m. ** All Sunday Funday participants have to finish course by 11:45 a.m. in order to reintroduce traffic to main streets.**
Packet Pick Up: PPU will open at 5 a.m. on the day of the event. Due to the three waves, there will be plenty of time for people to pick up their number and timing device at the start line. Remember it's a slow released start, and riders will go in several groups to ensure safety.
Register at kickstandclassic.org. Registration includes a commemorative cotton tee shirt, on-course technical bike support, a rest stop with light snacks and water, age group awards (riders must participate in the 19-mile course to be eligible for awards) and access to a post ride festival featuring a free beer by Revolution Brewing, entertainment and more.
Proceeds benefit the nonprofit Active Transportation Alliance. Active Trans is a coalition of people who are working to make biking, walking and transit safe and easy options for getting around Chicagoland.
