Bicycle Classic At Rockaway On June 6

Bicycle Classic At Rockaway On June 6

The first annual Rockaway Beach Classic Bicycle Race, sponsored by Arverne by the Sea, will be held on the peninsula on June 6, according to an announcement by Team Squiggle and the United States Cycling Foundation (USCF).

The day will include a series of races, all sanctioned by the USCF. All of the races will begin and end at Beach 73 Street, between Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Shore Front Parkway. The longest race of the day will be the Pro 1,2,3 race, which will be 20 laps around the course. Other races held that day include a Cat 3,4 race (10 laps), a juniors’ race for those between 15 and 18 years of age (8 laps), a masters race for those over the age of 35 (12 laps) and a race for women (10 laps).

In addition, there will be community races that are not sanctioned by the USCF. While the winners of the sanctioned races win cash and trophies, the winners of the community races will be presented with a bicycle.

The course will take riders on both the boardwalk and on Rockaway streets.
