It has been a great summer for cycling action here in Indianapolis.Â We are seeing great returns on our infrastructure investments, and our citizens are starting to embrace bicycle culture more enthusiastically.Â A good example of this was the Mass Ave Crit 2012 held last weekend.
The Mass Ave Crit is one of the most established races in the area, and it was a great turnout from spectators, fans, and cyclists.Â The event was blessed with beautiful weather and a lot of support from the community.Â I watched as many of the races as I could, and there was great action on every lap.
So now that the MAC and IndyCrit are complete, we have one more event to look forward to.Â It’s going to be a big weekend in Fountain Square, and the weather is looking good for the first Fountain Square Grand Prix!Â And of course, this neighborhood is ready to usher in the bike race with a great lineup of music, food, and a big race.
Concert Schedule at the bottom of this Indy Star article “Psyched in Fountain Square“.Â These are gonna be some great tunes.
Race map and race schedule on this flyer by Joe’s Cycles (and also an interview with Joe here).Â If you had any doubts about whether Fountain Square has “made it” as a neighborhood yet, just look at the sponsors at the bottom of that flyer.Â If you don’t recognize any of them, you need to be spending more time in this part of town because they all kick ass.Â It’s a great opportunity to celebrate summer cyling and the urban vibes that drive this neighborhood.
