Professional bike racing returns to Doylestown for 18th year

Posted

For the 18th year the streets of Doylestown will be transformed into a high speed criterium bicycle race course on Sept. 11.

The premier race in Pennsylvania, the Bucks County Classic draws racers from across the country and around the world. In 2021 Paola Andrea Muñoz Grandón, a 2012 Chilean Olympian, six-time Chilean National Road Race champion and 2017 Pan American Road champion won the Doylestown Health Pro Women’s Race.

The iconic 1.4 mile course with 90 feet of climbing per lap isn’t limited to those with racing palmarès. New for 2022 masters racers age 45-plus will have a chance to compete. Kids age 3 to 10 can sprint to the line just like the pros during the Jarrett Vaughan Builders Kids Races and anyone with a bike and helmet can “Ride the Course!” between the Eagle Power Turf and Tractor Amateur Men’s race and pro races.

“The Bucks County Classic is a gemstone of our community. As a partner of a local bike shop and elite team director it’s amazing to be able to have a race of this caliber right here in Doylestown. We love being able to showcase bike racing and share our love of the sport with our neighbors, community of bicycle enthusiasts and especially the next generation of cyclists,” said Brian Boger, partner at Bike Works and Bike Works p/b Fred Beans director.

The 2022 Bucks County Classic is made possible through the support of sponsors: Doylestown Health, Eastburn and Gray PC, Fred Beans Automotive Group, Borough of Doylestown, Eagle Power Turf and Tractor, Doylestown Health Foundation, Marshall Financial Group, Visit Bucks and Jarrett Vaughan Builders.
