Bicycle Parade

Register >

The Indy Crit Bicycle Parade is a new twist on an American tradition. It is a large-scale bicycle parade starting at University Park, proceeding down Meridian Street, and ending just past the Indy Crit Start/Finish line on Monument Circle. The Parade involves every type of bicyclist in the city, from urban, fixed-gear riders to the lycra-clad roadies.


It is a celebration of all things bicycle! 


The Bicycle Parade will feature:

  • Elaborately decorated micro-floats pulled by bicycles

  • Musicians on bicycles, including the Pork and Beans Brass Band

  • Polka band on tandems

  • Antique and vintage bicycles

  • Bike polo players

  • Local cycling teams presentation before the Pro race

  • Bikes decorated in lights for riders participating in the N.I.T.E. Ride later that evening!
