Chain of Lakes Cycling Classic

March 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm

The Chain of Lakes Cycling Classic in Winter Haven will enter its 9th year in 2018 with renewed high hopes to bring premier bike racing to Polk County.

Spectators are welcome at these events. All proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Humane Society of Polk County, Polk County’s only no-kill animal shelter.

The criterium’s start/finish line is adjacent to the peaceful and beautiful Central Park in downtown Winter Haven (346 West Central Ave.). Perhaps the greatest downtown small town criterium courses in the state, this venue offers so many great viewing opportunities that its hard to decide where the best place to watch actually is. Pick the grand stands that surround the turn 2/6 complex for the most action or sit in the town center green for a perfect view of the finish and backstretch.

Activities begin at 8:00 a.m. and continue until through a 45 minute Cat 4/5 race that begins at 1:45 p.m. There is room and shade for everyone, so come on out and have a great time.
