At least 300 bike racers converged on downtown Tacoma last summer for a day of bicycle racing known as the Tacoma Twilight Criterium. They won’t be back this summer.
Mike Brown, owner of Tacoma Bike and one of the organizers of the race, says the event is moving to the Proctor neighborhood after two years downtown.
He said excitement about the race by Proctor businesses was the primary reason for moving the race that requires closing about a mile of roads.
This year’s race is scheduled for June 30, according to the Washington State Bicycle Association’s racing calendar.
