Competitive Cycling Returns to Lombard!
The DuPage Sports Commission is bringing competitive cycling back to downtown with the Lombard Cycling Classic. As part of the Intelligentsia Cup Series, the Lombard Cycling Classic is a one-day, all-day, event expected to welcome upwards of 1,000 amateur and professional cyclists, and their guests, from around the world to Lombard on July 26, 2022.
Stay tuned for additional details including event activities, volunteer information and more.
Located in the downtown area, the course offers an exciting criterium featuring both a narrow and technical back side along Michael McGuire Drive, as well as a wide-open sprint finish stretch on St Charles Rd, and a start/finish line near the local favorite Babcock's Grove House.

The Lombard Cycling Classic is a family affair! Bring the kids out to see the fastest bicyclists in the country. Better yet, start a new family tradition by participating in the Kids & Family Community Ride. Meet at the Kids & Family tent no later than 5:30 PM to check in and sign waivers before the 6:15 PM start. All riders must bring their own bicycle and wear a helmet during the family event.
Pre-register your family to be entered to win a Family Pass to Brookfield Zoo (4 General Admission Day Passes & 1 Parking Pass). One entry per family. Winner will be announced at the start/finish line. Must be present to win.
We are currently seeking volunteers to assist as course marshals to ensure the safety of spectators and direct pedestrian crossing points.
