The Otto Wenz Cafe Hollander Downer Classic is Saturday, June 30, all day on Downer Avenue

The Downer Classic has the bike racing history and local street cred to make this one of America’s premier criteriums. With a flat three and one-half corner course, mega crowds and the infamous Ben’s Cycle Super Prime and Party, this is a must-attend event. The Cafe Hollander Downer Classic promises to be one of the highlights of cycling in Wisconsin this summer. The full day of racing also features a popular kids’ race, a Belgian Bier Festival, the famous Ben’s Cycle Super Prime, as well as a full slate of racing into the evening.

Kids can climb the Lake Park Dental Adventure Rock to get a bird’s eye view of the racers as they come around turn 1! The Pizza Man Spin Art station is always a big hit too- create your own masterpiece while pedaling a stationary bike. Adults will enjoy the Cafe Hollander Belgian Bier Festival including awesome food pairings like frites, totterballen, and cheese snacks, all while competing in a giant Jenga game. Live music will follow the races.

Please note that parking will be limited near the store for the day The best parking is likely to be further south, near Eastcastle and Columbia St. Mary's Hospital. If you love bike races and bike-themed fun, this is for you. If not, don't forget that we're open 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday.
