Chico, Calif. -- The beautiful weather and sunshine is bringing people outdoors, and Tuesday is the first day of the Chico Airport Criterium Series bike race.
It's a free series of races for all ages that happen every Tuesday until the end of the summer.
The Chico Cycling Team is sponsored by AMain cycling, and the team has put on this 16-week series of training races for the past three years.
The team has been around for 6 years; it started as a masters cycling team but they wanted everyone to get involved so they expanded it to all ages and all skill levels.
That’s what this event is all about, for everyone to get together and enjoy the sport.
There are several events: the professionals will go first, followed by other groups including seniors and children.
The races go from 6:0pm until 8:30pm on Convair and Marauder streets near the Chico airport, and, though each group has its own races, there are also races within races which provide opportunities to win some prizes.
