We promise to make it worth your while: free food, t-shirts, races, forced upper-body workouts. Check out what positions are available. To volunteer, call or text Alan Jacob at 509.270.8347 or email.

2014 Race Details

The Lilac City Twilight Criterium is back! The downtown Spokane Crit presented by Spokane Rocket Velo will thrill riders and spectators alike as racers fly through the streets of the vibrant heart of Spokane. In its 3rd year, the 2014 race will be bigger, better, and—dare we say—even faster!

And don't miss the Lilac City Crit Expo on the sidelines of the course. Check out local businesses and organizations as you watch the racing action. We are encouraging all local bike shops, bike clubs, and bike-related organizations to set up a tent in the expo area. If you would like to reserve a space at the expo, please contact Aaron Edwards for more information. Check out 2013 race results.

Since we've successfully shutdown downtown Spokane, let's make the most of it. While you may be up for a competitive race, consider coming out for the Citizens' Ragtag Rally, a low-key, non-competitive romp around the course. Show up on your tall bike, beater bike, beach cruiser, mountain bike, fixie, or anything that two wheels! We'll let everyone frolic in the streets of Spokane for a couple of laps under the lights before the final and fastest race of the night. FREE!
