A 3.4 mile loop along the park roadway in
Prospect Park. The course features one moderate (big ring) hill and
sweeping turns. Although the course is closed to traffic, you will frequently
encounter other park users (pedestrians, cyclists, etc), on the park roadway.
For this reason, all competitors are advised to stay alert and be polite to
other park users.

Riders must not enter the "recreation" lane on the left side of the roadway, for any reason. Any rider entering this lane, even momentarily, will be disqualified and suspended by USA Cycling and will not be permitted to race in NY Parks for three months and will not be permitted to race in the NY Cycling Series races for one year. We reserve the right to disqualify your entire team, if any of your riders enters the recreation lane.
If your field is being overtaken by another field, you must slow down and pull to the right immediately. Failure to do so will result in disqualification of specific riders or an entire field (we have done this). Do not mix in with a passing field. You MUST stay behind your pace vehicle, unless given specific instructions to the contrary.
ONE-DAY LICENSES are available on the day of the event at a cost of $10 for those without a USA Cycling Racing license. Please note that one-day licenses can be purchased only by unlicensed or Category 5 Men or unlicensed or Category 4 women.
