San Rafael Sunset Criterium

  • Downtown San Rafael 4th St San Rafael, CA, 94901 United States (map)

Join the fun, bring the family out to the San Rafael Sunset Criterium! This is criterium racing. This isn’t waiting for two hours to see guys pass in 10 seconds. This isn’t a TV commentator trying to add color to a grueling 8% grade climb through the Alps. This is “What the heck was that?” followed by “$#!* Here they come again!”

And for that lethargic forty seconds the riders are out of sight on the backside of the course, American cycling’s most renown voice and analyst, Dave Towle, is breaking down every nuance of what’s happening before your eyes.

And your blood is racing as local celebrity DJ Just pumps Afrojack and Pretty Lights through your veins...And you have a beer in your hand. And a cowbell in the other.

This is a party. This is a nightclub on wheels, outdoors, under streetlights as dusk falls on an idyllic cityscape of Northern California in the summertime. This is one of the best annual events in all the Bay Area. You don’t want to miss it!
