10:00AM - 8:00PM at Old Town North
West Dundee will host the opening day of the Intelligentsia Cup cycling series, one of the largest of its kind nationwide. The day will feature top riders speeding through historic Old Town North, plus expanded activities including a Restaurant and Entertainment Corridor with live music and race-side dining. Grafelman Park will be full of family-friendly activities, including a kid's bike clinic and a family bike parade, costumes encouraged (with prizes.)
The West Dundee River Challenge will take place throughout the day on Friday, July 16, 2021, with races lasting 30 to 90 minutes from 10 am and until about 8 pm. The course will be within the Old Town residential neighborhood on the north side of Route 72 (see course map linked below). Stay tuned for more details.
The Village recognizes that residents, businesses and vehicle traffic in and around the course area will be significantly impacted on the day of the race, and is working closely with the race organizers to ensure that this impact is minimized. While drive-up access to impacted properties will be restricted, pedestrian access will be facilitated continually throughout the day. Details about parking and access will be provided to those directly impacted as they are finalized.
