High-speed bicycle racing returns to the Grove in the second installment of the Grove Criterium. The cyclists have a set amount of time to complete as many laps as they can on the 1.2-mile course, which features six turns. The first race (there are nine categories for male and female riders, with prizes for each category's winner) starts at 10 a.m. in front of Urban Chestnut (4465 Manchester Avenue; www.thegrovecrit.com). The brewery gets into the spirit in a big way, with a race-day expo that includes a beer garden, food and live music throughout the day. Admission is free for spectators and $60 for prospective riders.
Price: free for spectators
