|Criterium event in Lower Providence Township
|BikeReg set up
|PARKING UPDATE - ALL RACE Parking is in the same new location as last year on the outside of the course this year. No parking in the lots you may have grown accustomed to as we've worked with the township to make this race safer and an institution for Lower Providence as they've given us a permanent parking opportunity. Let's not make the businesses in this part resent us by parking in their lots.
Race parking is in a parking lot on the corner of Van Buren Ave and Adams Ave (aka turn #4). There are two lots to choose from. The best way is to turn from Audubon Road onto Adams Ave. This will bring into the office park. Proceed to what is turn #4 of the race course. On your left is race parking.
Also if you are coming in off of Rittenhouse Road, you could turn onto Van Buren Ave and parking will be on your left at the second driveway. Registration will be near start finish and in this lot to keep things compact/easy. As well, registration will be in this lot to keep things compact/easy.
Please listen to the marshalls when they direct you to the parking location.
As always, this is a PCA / BAR race (www.pacycling.org)
Many thanks to our four sponsors of the event:
1.) The Performance Lab powered by the Rothman Institute (www.theperformancelabnj.com)
2.) Caffeinated Cyclist (www.tccyclist.com)
3.) Pennsylvania's Women's Racing Series (www.pawomensracing.blogspot.com)

Without supporters of this support we'd not have great events to gather and compete at. Please make your support of these sponsors known by going to their websites or storefronts and letting them know you recognize them as a stand-up company who supports what you like to do. That in itself will provide them with the ROI to continuing to help support cycling events in the Mid-Atlantic.
Couple things to note:
1) This is one of the top three highest attended criteriums in Pennsylvania - (last year had 400+ racers!!!).
2) This is the longest running criterium in the state.
3) All races are designed to be USCF upgrade worthy (As all races SHOULD be)!
