Event Description

The 8th annual IU Health Indy Criterium is sure to challenge the racers and thrill the spectators. Situated in the heart of Downtown Indianapolis, the Indy Crit offers cyclists a unique opportunity to race the city streets that they would rarely ride otherwise. The previous three years have drawn over 600 racers from across the Midwest!!  Be a part of the fun and excitement of Indiana's largest criterium race!


START/FINISH and FESTIVITIES to return to Monument Circle! The IU Health Indy Criterium will feature the same popular course with the start/finish line and festivities being held on Monument Circle. The direction of the course will run clockwise, allowing for a long, sprint finish towards the monument. Riders can expect the same smooth and safe pavement conditions for race day.

The Indy Criterium is an official non-profit 501(c)3 event. All event proceeds benefit Freewheelin' Community Bikes. Over $124,000 has been raised for Freewheelin' through the Indy Criterium! A HUGE thanks to our racers, sponsors and fans!
