The Alto Velo Racing Club and Alto Velo Elite Racing Team to Host Twilight Cycling Ride August 12
The evening is hosted by the Alto Velo Racing Club, which was founded in 1992 and has over 200 members, and the club’s Alto Velo Elite Racing Team (AVERT), a program designed to foster team racing and racer progression from the Cat 4 to Cat 1 levels.
The popular local cycling club will hold a gravity race from the top of the Corkscrew starting at 6:00 p.m. There will be a modern “aero” division and a classic “non-aero, non-carbon” division. Prizes will go to the winner (longest coasting distance) and most stylish bike (judge’s discretion) in each division. This will be followed by a five lap circuit race starting at 6:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded following the races.
The evening concludes with a free BBQ, offering the ideal way to unwind after challenging the 2.238-mile world-class road circuit.
“This is a rare opportunity to ride your bike on one of the world’s most famous racing circuits,” says Mike Reed, general manager of AVERT. “No cars, but pure excitement!”
The monthly cycling sessions provide a wonderful way to meet fellow cyclists and perhaps engage in some friendly competition. The evenings are open to all ages and levels and costs only $10 per person. Helmets are required. Twilight Cycling participants should follow the signs to the Red 9 parking lot and then proceed over the start/finish bridge.
