This summer West Bend will host the largest competitive cycling event in the U.S. as the Tour of America’s Dairyland comes to town.
“They were looking for a new venue and one of the organizers is from this area, he approached the city and we got a sponsor and it’s locked in,” Kellie Boone, events manager with the Downtown West Bend Association, said.
The tour, dubbed Downtown West Bend Criterium presented by Delta Defense, consists of a series of bicycle races that run throughout the day. “The tour reportedly brings in over 7,000 people with competitive racers and spectators,” said Boone.
The city will host the tour Monday, June 20.
