It's going to be a fun Heritage Days Week, and this bicycling event is sure to please! The International Cycling Classic is back!
A number of races – with competitors ranging from amateurs to international professionals – are planned starting the morning of July 20, culminating with the pro race around 6 p.m. The course will start/finish at 9th and Milwaukee Ave. Eddie Van Geyse, who was the Italian villain in the movie Breaking Away is the race’s entertaining announcer. Each race will take competitors on a unique 2.8-mile road course looping through the Oak Creek Parkway, into Grant Park, past the Bucyrus headquarters and finishing in downtown South Milwaukee on Milwaukee Avenue.
The day, however, is about much more than cycling. It’s also a day of family fun.
A number of special events are planned to coincide with the Classic, including a Kid’s Activity Zone sponsored by the South Shore YMCA and Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group. A special South Milwaukee Downtown Market – the outdoor street market that has taken off in popularity since its launch last July – is also planned.
Volunteers are needed!
