The Meijer Grand Cycling Classic is back for a third straight year, and is ready to take the streets of Grand Rapids by storm. The race takes place Saturday, August 8th welcoming professional and amateur cyclists, as well as those wanting to get a first hand view of the action from the streets. There is even a kid’s race taking place with over 250 participants this year. We may even be witnessing the very next Lance Armstrong peddling over Grand Rapid’s brick roads on Saturday. The track for the pro/am race will consist of a course circling the Van Andel Arena on Fulton, Market, Oakes, and Ionia. The race is sponsored my several Grand Rapids Businesses and Organizations as this should be an exciting celebration of Downtown Grand Rapids. The festivities begin at 10:45 A.M. so, make sure you get there early enough to get the best view of this all day event!
