About the Snake Alley Criterium

 The Snake Alley Criterium will look a little different in 2024.  It will be held on a twenty-seven block course, 1.9 miles per lap 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!!
