2013 Rock Lititz Bike Race

Clair Global, TAIT and ATOMIC, are pleased to announce the return of the Rock Lititz Bike Race and Block Party on April 26, 2015 in downtown Lititz, PA. Rock Lititz Community, an initiative created to support efforts that benefit the local and global community, is excited to host and expand the event after a year hiatus and to make it bigger and better than before.

Open to both amateur and professional cyclists, the event will take place on Sunday, April 26 with a tour for non-competitive cyclists followed by a fast-paced criterium spectator event on the streets of downtown Lititz. The tour will include distances of 20 miles, 40 miles and 62 miles (100k). It will be supported with rest areas and refreshments. Complete details and registration links for the races and the tour will be available soon at http://www.BikeRockLititz.com.

The Block Party will be rocking all day Sunday. Community members, the general public, and racers will celebrate from 11:00a.m.- 6:00p.m. The party will feature live music, special shopping, food trucks and a beer garden. There will be races for kids in addition to a bicycle handling skills course to prepare them for summer safety and fun. After the final race concludes with a trophy presentation, the music and festivities will continue. The Rock Lititz Bike Race and Block Party will be held rain or shine.

"So happy the bike race is returning this year,” says Paul Pendyck, Owner of Bulls Head Public House. “The race was a fantastic event in 2013, enjoyed by people of all ages…The MC did a fantastic job of keeping everyone engaged by commentating on the action that was taking place out of sight, so much so that everyone couldn’t wait to see who was first coming around the bend. Great day, thanks for bringing it back."

In 2013, the Rock Lititz Bike Race attracted 180 cyclists. Thousands of spectators, both local and out-of-town gathered. The 2015 event will serve as the official kick-off to something huge. This action-packed event wouldn’t be possible without local business partners and sponsors on board and there are still sponsorship opportunities available. To request sponsorship information, please contact Steve Stoltzfus, 717.598.2222, steve(at)bikerocklititz(dot)com.
