Traverse City, MI, June 09, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The 6th Annual Cherry-Roubaix bicycle race and title sponsor Garan Lucow Miller, P.C. are thrilled to introduce two new features to their Traverse City Cherry-Roubaix cycling destination, and both will take place on Saturday, June 15 in Old Town Traverse City. Coined “bikes, beers and the best of the best” by race directors, the 2013 Cherry Roubaix Bike race hosts a race-side viewing Microbrew Beer Tent for fans ages 21+ in Old Town at the corner of 8th and Union and sponsored by Right Brain Brewery. The beer tent will be open to the public on Saturday, June 15 from noon until the last race finishes around 8 pm. In addition to this new public beverage oasis, Cherry-Roubaix serves as the first-ever downtown Traverse City State Championship Criterium race host for masters, women and juniors.
A criterium race is fast-paced cycling action on a short loop, and because the Cherry-Roubaix race course is designed with fans in mind, spectators are inches away from racers competing for State Championship bragging rights and dueling it out to be the best of the best in Michigan.
In addition to intense completion, the whole family may participate in more relaxed, fun activities on Saturday, June 15, 2013. Between heats of Saturday’s Old Town Crit races, family fun continues for youngsters with the Cherry-Roubaix Kids Drag Race at 12:30pm in front of an enthusiastic, welcoming audience. For full-on family laughs on Saturday, June 15, enjoy the fun as extravagant costumed teams take the course at 5:00 pm for the return of the always entertaining Cherry-Roubaix Cruiser Classic in which teams relay a pie while navigating the cobblestone crit course.
On Sunday, June 16, Cherry-Roubaix Road Race takes cyclists from downtown to the rolling hills of Leelanau County with a race start high atop Sugar Loaf Mountain in Cedar.
Traverse City provides a world-class resort landscape of orchards, wineries, restaurants and boutique shopping with a charm of simpler times with family and friends. Open skies and beaches highlight the Cherry-Roubaix landscape for an event that attracts professional and amateur racers, cycling enthusiasts, volunteers and fans of all ages. Mark your calendars and book your travel plans to make Traverse City your one-stop vacation cycling destination where you can ride, race and have fun in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
