Get your bikes tuned up for June

The Cheemo Perogies Cycling Classic sees riders zoom through the hills of Metchosin on June 4.

The Cheemo Perogies Cycling Classic, as the race is now called, sees riders zoom through the hills of Metchosin on June 4.

The Classic is part of the annual Robert Cameron Law Cycling Series weekend and early bird registration is now underway for racing cyclists looking to test their mettle on the roads around Greater Victoria.

The Metchosin race is the Saturday morning competition on the series. It follows the Energylab Sprint Trial on the Friday night along Dallas Road in Victoria, and precedes the Russ Hay’s/Accent Inns Grand Prix on Sunday morning (June 5) starting and finishing at the B.C. Legislature.

Other events that day include the Timbits Challenge at 11 a.m. for children aged three to 10, and the Beat the Olympian celebrity relay, which happens before the elite races.

Registration details can be found at victoriabikerace.com. The early bird rate is in effect until midnight April 30.
