The race organizers are pleased to present the Steel City Showdown, a one-of-a-kind criterium-style bicycle race through the downtown area of Pittsburgh on Sunday April 29, 2012. Racers will experience “The City of Bridges” first-hand as they race a closed 0.8 mile loop over the Allegheny River. Located on Federal Street next to PNC Park, the start/finish line will be backed by the waterfront and downtown skyline. The roads are wide and smooth, and bridge sidewalks provide numerous vantage points for spectators to cheer.
NEW FOR 2012:
FREE PUBLIC RIDE!
There will be a free public ride on the Steel City Showdown course following the conclusion of the racing. The bridges will be open to bicyclists and free of cars from 3-4pm. Come down and watch the races and then enjoy some traffic-free laps on the iconic Steel City Showdown race course.
