Thank you for your cooperation and support of this event!
- Portions of Prospect, Alexander, Grace and Elm Park Avenues will be closed to serve as the race course throughout the day on Friday, July 21st 2017. We recognize that street parking and driveway access will be limited on Friday, July 21st, 2017. Accordingly, a parking plan for residents has been created which directs residents to alternative parking areas. Volunteers will be located around the course and in Wilder Park to assist you all day. Also, a cart will be available for residents needing special assistance. The Parking Plan will be delivered to your home prior to the race.
- If you will need your car on July 21st, please move it outside the race loop prior to 10:30am (see map). The course will re-open shortly after the Pro Men’s Race finishes at 10pm. We will provide an overnight parking permit should you choose to move your car outside the race course the night before (Thursday, July 20th, 2017). You may also leave your car outside of the course overnight on Friday, July 21st, 2017. Place this permit on your dashboard.
- You cannot drive on the course during the race. It is simply too dangerous.
ENJOY THE DAY!
Join your neighbors for cook-outs and parties to watch the racers go by your house! Many residents use this day as an opportunity to have friends over or host parties. Members of the Elmhurst Cycling Classic Committee will be visiting residents who have block parties underway to supply race goodies. Stay tuned for details, and be sure to walk to Wilder Mansion for the finish of the race!
