Urban Times Facelift and article about Mass Ave. Crit
by   |   0 COMMENTS
Some of you may be familiar with the local publication, Urban Times. Well, they've recently launched a new website that is pretty slick looking (I've to admit, I'm incredibly happy to see the old papyrus logo go the way of the sans serif, but that's a different matter). While I was perusing this site, I came across a nice little write up about the upcoming Cultural Trail Mass Ave. Criterium:

Competitive cyclists from across the Midwest will converge upon Mass Ave for the second straight year, taking part a series of races known as the Indianapolis Cultural Trail Mass Ave Criterium.

The event will occur from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, in the 400 and 500 blocks of Mass Ave, with the triangular course also covering Vermont and East streets. Vehicular traffic along the route will be restricted that day, although pedestrians and cars will be allowed to cross these streets mid-race.

Presented by NUVO, the annual event is described as a European-like festival which involves races in five categories, as well as a kid’s race and a bicycle safety rodeo.
Full story here.

Nice site, Urban Times. Keep up the good work.

(A bit of an update: the associated alleycat mentioned at the end of the article has actually been postponed due to logistical reasons. This will hopefully be an addition to the 2010 Mass Ave. Crit.)
