What cities have weeknight crit series?

Austin Driveway
Turbo Velo Richardson (Dallas)
Houston has I think a 6 week crit series (so super short)

I've heard that the Richardson crit (which is a suburb of Dallas) is the largest one in the country now (most starters). Austin #2. I wonder why Texas is #1 and #2. What other cities have crits all spring and summer?

Can't add to the cities list, but I did read somewhere in the past few days that crits across the country are having a revival.

Participation at SCNCA events seems to be bouncing back slightly. We had two legacy road races in San Diego pop up on the calendar this year after a multi year hiatus, which is great,

Kissena Cycling Club in NYC (Brooklyn) seems to still do the Tuesday night series at Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn. That’s a good course on a former airfield, so big open course, easy to avoid crashes.

Ninigret Park in RI, Wednesdays. Super laid back. If I was closer I'd do it all the time, but I've only ever made like 4 or 5 races over the course of 5 or 8 or something years.

There used to be one on Tuesdays at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, but they reduced it to 4 races this summer, so not really "every week" by any means.

I screwed up big time in Gainesville, Florida. We had a "brownfield" that was going to be turned into a city park and a stormwater retention area that looks good and not just a rectangular retention pond. This park was going to be adjacent to a rail trail. Folks in Gainesville now know it as Depot Park.

I was at the charette and I was only thinking about recreational riders needing water fountains. The park would be adjacent to a rail trail that takes folks out to a really nice one east of town. What I should have been thinking was that they could pave a wide enough path around the ponds for an off road crit series. It would have been awesome.

And since I was friends with the mayor at that time who was the driving force behind the whole thing I might have gotten it done.

One of my regrets in life.
