Summer is just around the corner, and that means so is our favorite Seattle bike race, the Ballard Criterium. On Saturday, May 25 at 6 p.m. Rapha Seattle will host a party to celebrate the 26th edition of the race.
We'll be joined by Heidi Franz, pro cyclist for Rally Cycling, whose career was shaped in our backyard racing the Ballard Crit. She'll share a bit of her journey, and how racing in Seattle has taken her to the top level of the sport.
We'll be offering raffle prizes, and plenty of food & drink to get riders in the mood to race the brick roads of Ballard on June 8th.
