“The Nittany Stage Race is the dream of every cyclist. A two day, three race event that offers a challenging road course, incredible downtown racing, and lots of bang for the buck… all to help a great cause! “
On Aug 1-2, CentreBike is helping to support the Nittany Stage Race (www.racestagecollege.com). Not only do proceeds go towards a great local organization, The Bestwick Foundation, but the event will bring crowds of top cyclists to town, and help us continue to build momentum around our bike-friendly image.
On Sunday, CentreBike encourages all residents of State College to bike down to downtown to watch the races – which will be held on several closed-off roads of the Borough. In addition to spectating, from 1:30 to 6:00, during the Criterium races, a section of Nittany Ave (next to KCF Technologies) will be closed. CentreBike will host activities like free bike tune-ups and safety checks, as well as having food trucks (including Food for Thought and Ritas Italian Ice), a masseuse from A Step Beyond Massage Therapy, and unusual bike demonstrations. Visit with folks from The Bicycle Shop as well as 105.9 Quik Rock From 5:00-5:20pm, families who register at the tent in advance can have the chance to ride the Criterium bicycle course! Learn more about Family Fun at the Criterium.
Many CentreBike members are also volunteering to help on both days of the event – marshaling at intersections, set-up/take-down, pace car drivers, and more. (Watch out for us in our matching shirts!) If you are interested in volunteering, there are still slots available — contact Brian Dempsey at email@example.com
We hope to see you there!
