Snake Alley Criterium
May 26, 2018, 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM (CST)
Celebrating 36 Years in 2018!
Voted the 5th Best Criterium in the U.S. by a national cycling magazine, the Snake Alley Criterium pits athletes from all over against Snake Alley, named "Unbelievably Crooked" by Ripley's Believe It or Not!. Watch top cyclists as they race around a 15 block course and up Snake Alley. The popular kids' race and grueling Cobble Climb take place at Noon.
Visit our downtown shops and food vendors, too. The Snake Alley Criterium is called "one of the most physically challenging races in the Midwest" by the Iowa Bicycle Racing Association.
