DFW: come watch bike racing this weekend

After your ride Saturday/Sunday morning, come on down and watch the PRO and top amateur bike racers at the Matrix Criterium.

It's a very spectator-friendly setting (The Wilson Historic District), there's a kids playground and dog park onsite, lots of shade, fun crowd.

The main event starts at 1:30pm both Sat and Sun.
Free parking, Cafe Brazil nearby.

3114 Swiss Ave Dallas, TX 75204

Thanks for posting this. I was planning on going, but wasn't sure exactly where it was. The address is a big help.

And as a side note. Great event and loved all the people that showed up to watch the locals race! Pretty fun to actually race in front of people clapping and yelling for you!
