Look for signs and volunteers for River City Bicycle Classic parking. We will not be using the baseball stadium parking this year so please allow extra time to get from parking to registration. The start finish and registration have been moved to the north east side of the park for 2014 to allow for better spectating. Thanks and good luck!

The River City Bicycle Classic takes cyclists through historic Garvin Park with beautiful, wide sweeping turns.
