This is an amazing cycling race in downtown. Free admission and great action.
Come watch the area's fastest cyclists compete for the region's biggest purse in the Portland Twilight Criterium presented by Subaru. The course surrounds the North Park Blocks of downtown Portland, creating an island oasis of 360-degree viewing, music, food and beverage. There are several places where you can get close enough to feel the wind from the racers. Each lap is one-half mile long which takes the racers just over one minute to complete. The event is free to attend and great for families. Come downtown Friday evening, to experience the excitement yourself.
