Cirque du Cycling is a family-friendly celebration of bike fun including a 100-200 person free family ride starting from the Q Center on Mississippi Ave, and going to Peninsula Park for a rest stop with refreshment and games. At the end of the Family Ride, participants will be going back to Mississippi to watch several hours of evening excitement while some of the area’s rising bike racing stars zoom up and down Mississippi Avenue in 3 thrilling races.  We anticipate several thousand spectators who will be enjoying the great restaurants and shopping opportunities the neighborhood offers.  There will be a beer garden at Prost on Mississippi between Skidmore and Mason, and there will be free unsecured bike parking by Flavor spot on Fremont  near Mississippi.
