Racing dates back to ancient Greece, where chariot races around city walls settled disputes such as farming rights and which philosopher had a superior beard. Witness the fairest system of justice with today's Groupon to the World Series of Bicycling at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Breinigsville. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get two general-admission tickets (a $10 value).
- For $8, you get two finish-line tickets (a $16 value).
Tickets can be used any Friday from June 17 to July 17. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., and racing begins at 7:30 p.m. Kids under 12 are always free.
The World Series of Bicycling thrills spectators all season long with Olympic-intensity tournaments on two wheels. During the summer months, pedal pushers from all over the world whiz along the 333-meter track at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour on a fixed-gear bike with no coasting, no brakes, and no handlebar bells. Kids can meet their favorite cyclists in a semimotionless state after the competition for autographs and sweaty high-fives. Valley Preferred has played host to myriad competitions such as Olympic trials and the Junior World Championships, producing numerous champions such as 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist and current executive director, Marty Nothstein.
Just outside the track blooms a lush beer garden and the Breakaway Cafe, where famished fans can enjoy all-organic treats, local wine, and libations provided by Anheuser-Busch (this Groupon does not include food and drinks).
The Valley Preferred Cycling Center's rich history in the world of competitive cycling is evident in the affectionate nickname coined by its visiting racers: T-Town. Every year, the 333-meter track roars under the wheels of amateur and professional cyclists during races, and preps the next generation with courses such as the Air Products developmental cycling program and age-grouped racing leagues.
