On Thursday, June 23 the Brady Street BID will be holding the first Great Brady Street Bike Race: Benefitting ADHD America in coordination with Tour of America’s Dairyland. This family-friendly and community-engaging event will bring racers from around the world to Brady Street to compete on a race path described as “brutal” by those in the know. In addition to the traditional races there will be the Valentine’s Coffee kids race (it will not be brutal), and the brand new Tarbender 200 race that will include some of Brady Street’s most popular bartenders and regulars. At the conclusion of The Great Brady Street Bike Race the BID invites you to participate in the evening’s bar crawl, featuring bars and restaurants that participate in the Tarbender 200. This event is the perfect opportunity for residents to hold parties in front yards, or for businesses on the race route to throw viewing parties. The Brady Street BID is very excited to host this event and bring our neighborhood some much deserved fun! Check out the race schedule below. The Brady Street BID appreciates that this event will close streets in the area for the day and that this will require working with our neighborhood residents. The BID will be holding a community meeting (date to be determined) and distributing flyers at least twice to all residents in the area. Residents within the race zone will be asked to move their cars outside of the race zone before 8:30am on Thursday, June 23, and street will reopen by 10pm Thursday evening. An access road will be made available at E. Hamilton Street that will allow cars to move in and out of the race zone in between races.
DASHERBOARD and JUMBOTRON ads are available for a tax-deductible donation.
