World-class bicycle racing again makes its way to Los Gatos on May 14, 2016 for the 42nd Annual Cat’s Hill Classic Bicycle Races presented by Mike’s Bikes and the Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club.
Staged among the historic Victorian homes at Tait and Nicholson Avenues just two blocks off North Santa Cruz Avenue in beautiful Los Gatos, CA, the Cat’s Hill Classic Bicycle Race is renowned as one of the most difficult closed circuit cycling races in the United States!
Racers repeatedly climb up the challenging 23% grade of “Cat’s Hill” on Nicholson Avenue and complete the mile-long neighborhood loop with a 50+mph hair-raising descent onto the crowd-lined finishing stretch. Races for all categories and levels start at 9:20 AM. and continue through the day. The women’s top category race will run for one hour starting at 3:55 PM. The men’s professional and top-level class race will start at 5:00 PM and last for one hour and fifteen minutes. This family friendly event is a perfect way to spend a Saturday.
