About the Snake Alley Criterium

The Snake Alley Criterium is held on a fifteen block course, with differences in elevation from 555 feet to 678 feet. The course is entirely on city streets in a downtown commercial area. 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% 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!!
