For some reason I missed the Pringle Creek Criterium Races last month. Pringle Creek Community is a great location for racing.
For several years there has also been short track racing at the Fairgrounds in August, but that may be done.
A new cyclocross series at Keizer Rapids Park starts Monday, though, and its location is way better than the Fairgrounds! It could in fact become the second great location for racing in and around Salem!
boat launch, and it looks like the paved paths will in some places get you near the off-pavement course for spectating.
Hopefully this will be the start of something grand!

Still, 200 years? By Salem standards this is ancient stuff.
The map is from a 2007 plan, and I don't think it's all built out yet. It and Sunset Park, a few blocks north, are the only riverfront parks here in Keizer, since most of the riverfront property has been developed with single-family homes.
