Sunday Bike to Silverton Road Races

Jen Akeroyd sends this great news! The weather is looking perfect.

Bike to Silverton and support Salem's local road racers this Sunday!

Hosted by Capitol Velo Racing Club of Salem, the Lulay's Silverton Road Race is this Sunday May 17th. The course is a 17.5 mile loop with few flat sections, constant rollers, some extended climbs and features an uphill finish. Racers will be completing either 2, 3 or 4 loops depending on their category.

Riding the course in the opposite direction of the race is a great way to spectate. The course starts and ends at the Victor Point School.

The Salem-Keizer area is home to just over 80 racers representing more than 15 teams and ranging in age from 9 to 62 with an average age of 36. While most racers are male, nearly 25% of the racers are female.
LifeSource and Venti's are also sponsors! And Bike Peddler, Santiam Bicycle, Scott's Cycle, South Salem Cycleworks.

Here's the course route and map.

Even if you can't go to the race, just get out and ride!
