The Tour de Grandview bike races takes place this Friday, June 26, through the streets of Grandview Heights - and it even has a free "Kids Sprints" event for your young cyclists!

There will be several serious and even world-class cycling races as part of the event that you can watch on the course that goes from West First Avenue to Willard Avenue to West Second Avenue to Grandview Avenue and back around again! Those begin at 6:30 p.m. and will continue until nearly 10 p.m.

But in between there, at 7 p.m., the KidsSprints races will happen down a stretch of First Avenue. There will be age groups for girls, ages 5-7 and 8-10, and for boys, ages 5-7 and 8-10. You can register between 5 and 6 p.m. on the north side of First Avenue and Avondale Avenue.
