Snake Alley Criterium

Snake Alley Criterium

Saturday, May 27, 2023 (8:30 AM - 5:00 PM) (CDT)


Due to downtown road construction, the Snake Alley Criterium will look a little different in 2023 (as it did for 2022). It will be held on a twenty-two block course, 1.509 miles per lap with differences in elevation from 591 feet to 686 feet. The course is entirely on city streets, in a downtown commercial area and a historic residential district. A one block long climb is on the historic brick street named Snake Alley, dubbed "the crookedest street in the world." The 276 foot long Snake Alley has 5 switchbacks in a sixty foot climb. The average grade is 12.5 percent in that one block. Bring a suitable gear cluster for that kind of climbing. This is one of the most physically challenging races in the Midwest. Come Race the Snake!!
