Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic

Pro bike racing and family fun

On Saturday, August 11 the streets of downtown West Chester will become a hotbed of excitement as top professional bike racers from all over the country and beyond go wheel-to-wheel in an all-out contest of speed and endurance. It’s all part of the 13th annual Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic. Don’t miss the 75K Iron Hill Pro Men’s Criterium and the 40K Brumbaugh Wealth Management Pro Women’s Criterium. Before the pros take over the streets, visitors will enjoy a full afternoon of family-focused fun starting with the popular West Chester Dental Arts Kids’ Race with age-specific bike racing for children 3 to 10; the always-hilarious Tolsdorf Trike Challenge where organizations and businesses duke it on three wheels; and the Rothman Institute Amateur Criterium, an exciting showcase for top local bike riders going shoulder to shoulder for the glory of victory. There’s also the ever-popular Kids’ Zone loaded with fun and activities, and a Community Festival where you’ll find all the latest must-haves ready for purchase. All this plus great shopping in quaint shops and great food everywhere. More information:
