2018 Mounds View Festival Crit

August 18, 2018

Presented by PJW Automotive

Mounds View Festival Criterium Returns August 18!

The 2018 event is open for registration at www.usacycling.org. soon. Put the date on your calendar.

It will be a busy day around the Mounds View Community Center because of all the Festival In The Park events like the parade, craft shows, car show and food vendors so we are located just a few blocks away with the same great course as 2017.

Racer Information

The Course

The race course is east of MultiTech Systems and is a rectangle on the streets of Quincy, Wooddale Drive, Program Ave and County H2 approx. 1.1 miles long. The start finish is on Quincy adjacent to the east side of MultiTech. The course will travel counter-clockwise with four 90 degree left turns.

There are a few locations for toilets. At MultiTech, we will have Porta Potties. In the Mounds View Community Center building, a few blocks away there are inside toilets, plus Porta Potties for the entire Festival will be next to the City Hall building and park area.


The best place to park for all racers and attendees is the Multi Tech parking lot adjacent to/behind the Bio Life lot. It’s a few blocks from all the other festival activities going on, but it is right next to the race course. The lot has room for 400 vehicles so there should be plenty of room for set up, warm ups, etc.

Look for signs on Mounds View Boulevard and Woodale Drive to direct you.  Google maps, search for 2205 Wooddale Drive in Mounds View

Note: Warm ups can be done through/around the local community but be aware of other festival patrons and activities. Use the back Multi Tech lot for your main base to set up/trainer warm ups.
