The City of McKinney, Texas in partnership with McKinney Velo Velo invites you to the fifth annual Bike the Bricks Criterium... in Historic Downtown McKinney on Friday evening, May 23, 2014. Spectators will be inches from the action as bike racers rocket through the downtown McKinney square at speeds in excess of 40 MPH, powered only by their legs, and protected from the pavement only by their skill.
Some will be trying to grab a share of the $25,000 plus prize money, for others it’s a test of survival.
Event spectators of all ages are invited to this year's Friday night free event in Downtown McKinney to enjoy cycling, friendly camaraderie and an opportunity to purchase food and drink This year we are estimating 500 cyclists will participate in the event, and thousands of spectators will enjoy event amenities.
Warm up begins at 2:30 p.m., racing kicks off at 3:00p.m.
Bike the Bricks in Downtown McKinney on May 23 is an opportunity for racers and fans to make memories while helping McKinney Main Street and McKinney Velo support a worthy cause in our community. So grab your lawn chairs, bring the family and experience a memory in the making under the stars as we celebrate what being part of McKinney Texas is all about.
