Wondering what you’re doing on the weekend of September 7-8, 2013? Of course not. You know where you’ll be. You’ll be at the Carlsbad Grand Prix of Cycling. On Saturday, September 7, 2013 join the entire Carlsbadistan cycling community with the Family Fun Ride.

The featured Family Fun Ride event starts at Holiday Park in Carlsbad Village, looping out through the Village before returning to Holiday Park. All participants will be given a map with 5 destinations. Those destinations are places required to stop to pick up your wristbands. The main 5 stops will take you on an approximately 2-mile circuit of Carlsbad Village. After collecting all 5 wristbands, you will return to the park where your entry number will be qualified to enter the raffle for the grand prize, plus many more prizes to be announced at 3pm. A 6th bonus stop at any of the 11 Hoehn Motors Carlsbad locations provides you with a free entry into the additional raffle of 2012 Masi Evo Rival road bike (a $20 value), with the winner to be announced at 4pm. . . . Listed stops on the fun ride are: SubZero, Boys and Girls Clubs of Carlsbad, Pedego, The Grand Deli, and Supercuts. Please note, the Family Fun Ride is NOT a race. Fastest time wins nothing.

On Sunday, September 8, 2013 the action heats up above the Flower Fields as Southern California’s strongest criterium racers dice it up in the fast and furious Carlsbad Grand Prix of Cycling.

This full day of races will feature more than 600 junior, amateur, professional, and Paralympics hand cyclists (via Challenged Athletes Foundation) competing in timed races for prizes and/or cash in front of 2,000 spectators. This event will begin approximately at 7:00am and finish in the late afternoon. Spectating and expo is free and open to the public.
