Grove Criterium 

When: Sun., July 30, 10 a.m. 2017
Price: free for spectators
We know, we know: You haven't watched a bicycle race since Lance Armstrong was exposed as a cheat. But hear us out. There's a huge difference between watching a bike race on TV and standing on a sidewalk as a knot of 41 hard-charging cyclists throw themselves into a sharp corner just inches away from you. The Grove Criterium is a challenging 1.2-mile course with six turns that takes cyclists through and around the Grove neighborhood. In fact, the race starts and ends in front of Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (4465 Manchester Avenue; www.thegrovecrit.com). Imagine spending a warm summer day observing athletes in peak physical condition compete for your amusement — while you drink beer and enjoy Urban Chestnut's amazing french fries. Nice, right? Races start with the Juniors division at 10 a.m. today and continue all day until the Men's Pro racers take the course at 3:45 p.m. Admission is free for spectators.
