EVENT DESCRIPTION: The Spartanburg Regional Classic is a closed-circuit, multi-lap cycling 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. 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, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting active lifestyles in Spartanburg County.
