The city of Cudahy will host elite bicyclists from across the country during the Superweek bike race in July. The South Shore Cyclery Classic will be held on Thursday, July 15, and will be one of 17 consecutive days of the 2010 International Cycling Classic (ICC) bike races. The “superweek” event series will feature races in 14 city centers in Wisconsin and Illinois.
“We are proud to be the named sponsor of the South Shore Cyclery Classic,” said Scott Wilke, owner of South Shore Cyclery. “With Cudahy’s beautiful bike trails and parkland along Lake Michigan, as well as the South Shore’s enthusiasm for recreational bicycling, this event is a natural fit for our community.”
The race will begin at 6 p.m. near Wilke’s bike shop and museum and will follow a one-mile course down Packard Avenue and side streets. The race will be the centerpiece for a full day of activities that will include bike safety checks, helmet fittings, bike races for kids, food music and entertainment.
“This is a perfect summertime activity for Cudahy families and visitors,” said Mayor Ryan McCue. “We encourage everyone to come downtown, eat in one of our great restaurants and enjoy as many of the racing activities as possible.”
