Penn State Cycling Club To Host Nittany Stage Race

The Penn State Cycling Club will host the first ever Nittany Stage Race on Aug. 1 and 2. The two-day event will feature three different types of bike races, including the state championship Pennsylvania Elite Women’s Road Race.

Other than the state championship, the Nittany Stage Race will have a road race in the nearby Black Moshannon State Park, a time trial that goes through campus and downtown, and a family fun ride. Overall, there are set to be 19 races throughout the weekend. Cash prizes that total $12,000 will be awarded to the winners of races.

If you’re not much of a bike racer and more of a bike enthusiast, the Nittany Stage Race will also be holding a bike friendly festival during the weekend. Plus, all of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Bestwick Foundation, a local charity that provides financial assistance to those who are in unforeseen need.

The stage race concept allows bikers to pay a flat rate for all three races. If you’d like to register, you can find more information here. There is no fee to participate in the family fun ride. All you need to bring is a bike and a helmet.

More than 300 people are expected to register for the event. “Our mission is to create a charitable event that is fun for both cyclists and non-cyclists alike” event coordinator Chuck Morrison said.

If you’d like to help the Penn State Cycling Club fund the event, a USEED (Penn State’s crowdfunding platform) page is set to launch on July 1. Additionally, you can find more information about the Nittany Stage Race here.
