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. Come to cheer at the Sunset Criterium! A beer garden will be set up so you can cheer while sipping on some great local brews. The 1-km course, located in San Rafael’s vibrant downtown setting, starts and finishes on 4th Street while running clockwise on 4th, D St., 5th St., and A St.
The San Rafael Sunset SPORTS EXPO will run from 3:00pm-10:00pm under the bright lights of Downtown San Rafael. All vendors will be placed on the course as cyclist whisk by at 40 mph!
