Upcoming events by: City on Lockdown








City on Lockdown is an urban bike messenger event that will bring the cycling community and race enthusiast together. This will be a three day event, with a point system building up through each day. When each day is over, we will be giving out prizes for the top 3 female and top 3 male racers. Track Bike racers (fixed geared) can build points by coming in top 3 in each event to win the overall prize on Sunday. You can race track or road,whichever one you decide.  The overall prize is only for the Track King  and Track Queen, to hold the title of City On LockDown.


Day one will  have two races, a Criterium Race at the Rose Bowl, (to see some of the fastest sprinters) and an Alleycat in DTLA (to get know your city better). The second day will be a road stage. The race starts in downtown  and will go around Los Angeles. The course will have sprint and climber check points. At the finish line, food and drinks will be provided to the registrants as well as host fun side events for everyone to participate in. The third day is the main event, which will consist of a three hour race in DTLA to see who has the city on lockdown. Head over to the Five Star for our annual Día de los Muertos party with bands, food and awards.
