As I was driving in this morning, I noticed that a section of Indiana, was marked Bike Race July 3rd, expect delays. I was shocked that this snuck up on me in my own back yard. A quick internet search proved that the Candelas Circuit Race would be held July 3rd and would consist of multiple 3.6 mile laps utilizing both lanes of Candelas parkway.
I would be competing in the SM35+ 4 and would have to complete 7.5 laps or 28 miles. As it stands I have no intention of signing up as I would probably be lapped at least 2X and maybe more. However, I do intend to ride the circuit this weekend to compare my times with competitive cyclists. This road is close by and has been open for over a year. However, I have only completed it once as it is a pretty tough climb and a fast descent.
As the race flyer suggests, the days of this stretch of open road are probably numbered as a subdivision will certainly crop up.
