Cycle Avondale, the city’s annual half-metric—that’s 31 miles—bike ride, is scheduled for Oct. 4.

The race is open to all levels, with a route beginning at Friendship Park and winding through the city, including a lap around Phoenix Raceway.

The route is mostly level terrain, with minor changes in elevation entering and exiting Phoenix Raceway.

Cycle Avondale is the only bike event permitted at the racetrack, offering riders an opportunity to compete against one another to set the track record for the next year.

Early-bird registration by Sept. 15 is $50. After that date, the cost to register is $75. A portion of the registration proceeds will benefit the local Phoenix Children’s Hospital charity.

The registration fee includes a T-shirt and commemorative token.
