Thank you for your continued cooperation and support! It wouldn't be one of the greatest events in Illinois cycling without you!
- Portions of Prospect, Alexander, Grace and Elm Park Avenues will be closed to serve as the race course throughout the day on Friday, July 26th, 2019. We recognize that street parking and driveway access will be limited on Friday, July 26th, 2019. 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 Friday, July 26th, 2019, please move it outside the race loop prior to 7:30am (see map). The course will re-open shortly after the Pro Men’s Race finishes at 8:15pm. We will provide an overnight parking permit should you choose to move your car outside the race course the night before (Thursday, July 25th, 2019). You may also leave your car outside of the course overnight on Friday, July 26th, 2019. 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!
