If you are looking for something different to do that will have everyone in your family entertained, you’ll definitely want to check out the Spartanburg Regional Classic. The Spartanburg Regional Classic is a closed-circuit, multi-lap bicycling race. It will be a featured event in Spartanburg’s largest annual festival, Spring Fling. In addition, it will be included in the USA CRITS Speed Week series, which is guaranteed to draw top national racing teams and international racers.
The race has an officially sanctioned, half-mile course that is unique for its cobblestone start/finish line, open-air plaza center, and dangerously sharp right turns. This race is set on a half mile course and has been likened to Nascar or horseracing on two wheels. It is one of many cycling activities held in May as part of National Bike Month.
The event is a major component of the Bike Town initiative, a collaborative campaign that earned the City of Spartanburg its national designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community. That effort is spearheaded by Partners for Active Living (PAL), a nonprofit, 501c3 organization dedicated to promoting active lifestyles in Spartanburg County.
