TheBANK of Edwardsville Rotary Criterium Festival

Now entering its eighth year, the TheBANK of Edwardsville Rotary Criterium is a series of high-speed bicycle races, free kids races, live bands, and an open containers perimeter, all on the streets of Downtown Edwardsville.

This unique signature event has been hosted by the Edwardsville Rotary Club since 2010 as a fund-raiser for community enhancing projects and as a gift to the people in the Edwardsville area. Because Edwardsville is a bicycling city that loves big events and opportunities to show off our Downtown, the Criterium is a perfect fit.

Event sanctioned by the USA Cycling Association and the Missouri Bicycle Racing Association (MOBRA). Event will be held rain or shine and helmets must be worn while on the bike.
