The Redlands Bicycle Classic is the longest continuous running invitational, professional stage race in American bike racing. Each year, the City of Redlands and surrounding communities open their homes, their hearts and their streets to world-class athletes. From humble beginnings on a Memorial Day weekend in 1985, the event, featuring 350 elite racers, has hosted future stars of the Olympics, Tour de France, and World Championships. The Redlands Bicycle Classic's long heritage of attracting future stars has earned its position in history: "Where Legends Are Born!"
We have a full range of vendors, including a wide assortment of food choices. Experience the live bands and cycling exhibitions before and after watching some exciting racing in Downtown Redlands.
A constructive way for our youth to show school spirit, participate in healthy physical activity, and take part in friendly competition on the same course the professionals use. Amateur racers of various ages were on display in 2016.
