NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — One of Connecticut’s premier cycling events is back in downtown New Haven for the third year in a row.

The 3rd annual New Haven Grand Prix will take place on the streets of downtown New Haven on Friday, September 15th; and News 8 is proud to be a sponsor of this fun community event again this year.

According to organizers, the New Haven Grand Prix was established to give our community a chance to see top riders up close in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Not only will you be supporting a good cause, but you’ll have a fun time doing it.

The Grand Prix features food tents, activity areas for kids and adults, and just about something for everyone. More than just a bicycle race, it’s a twilight bicycle race and street festival.

The New Haven Grand Prix is a fundraiser for the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program, a charitable 501c3 organization. All race proceeds help create a community where youth can learn and thrive through the sport of cycling, both in and out of schools across the state of Connecticut.

Over 15,000 people came out for a fun night in New Haven last year, and an even larger crowd is expected for this year’s festivities.
