The inaugural Virginia’s Blue Ridge Downtown Twilight Criterium will take place May 21, 2016. The event will include professional level bicycle racing through the streets of downtown Roanoke, live music on an outdoor stage, race expo, VIP areas, custom cycling apparel, and multiple viewing areas with attached beer gardens. In addition to the professional cycling race and live outdoor music stage additional day-of events are being added including a beer-mile fun run and an adult big wheel relay race. The streets of Roanoke are going to be full of energy. Future plans for the event include adding a second day of racing in either South Roanoke or Salem.
