This event has already happened

The City of McKinney and McKinney Velo invite you to the eighth annual Bike the Bricks Criterium in Historic Downtown McKinney. Spectators will be inches from the action as bike racers rocket through the downtown McKinney square at speeds in excess of 40 MPH, powered only by their legs, and protected from the pavement only by their skill.

Some will be trying to grab a share of the $25,000 plus prize money, for others it’s a test of survival.

Event spectators of all ages are invited to this year's Friday night free event in Downtown McKinney to enjoy cycling, friendly camaraderie, live music and food and drink available for purchase. This year we are estimating 500 cyclists will participate in the event, and thousands of spectators will enjoy event amenities.

Warm up begins at 2:30 p.m., racing kicks off at 3 p.m.

Bike the Bricks is an opportunity for racers and fans to make memories, so grab your lawn chairs, bring the family and experience a memory in the making under the stars as we celebrate what being part of McKinney, Texas, is all about.
