Fast and Furious Racing in The Energy Corridor?

Bicycling Competitors are Hammering the Bear Creek Crit Track

There’s something thrilling about a closely packed group of bike racers pedaling as hard as they can, stretched chains and whisper-thin tires whirring over an asphalt track. This September, Energy Corridians can take in that spectacle during the Bear Creek Crit Series 2015, taking place Tuesday evenings at 3535 War Memorial Dr. just off N. Eldridge Parkway and Clay Road. 

With a nightly purse of $345, the competition can get serious.

A crit, or criterium, is a bike race held on a short course. At the Bear Creek Crit Series in the Addicks Reservoir, riders hammer over a flat 0.8-mile loop. Adult and junior racers compete for the series championship cup in category 1-5 levels. The crit series is presented by the Northwest Cycling Club.

The 30- to 60-minute races begin at 5 p.m., with the Cat 1-3 riders hitting the loop at 6:20 p.m. The series features three more nights of competition September 15, 22, 29.
