Cycling enthusiasts will flock to downtown High Point for the 2013 USA Cycling Professional Criterium Championship. The fast paced race runs a short 1.7 miles but the riders do this several times so the organizers say you will see the pack cycle by about every 4 to 5 minutes! The races are the equivalent of a national cycling championship. High Point has been bidding for this event for the past two years and landed it this year.
Organizers have also put together an art exhibit where a bicycle frame is the canvas and artists use themes to create a mobile piece of art. The Bicycle: Art Meets Form exhibit will run through the weekend as well. Click HERE for more information.
