Nevada City Classic Bicycle Race

The 52nd Nevada City Classic Bicycle Race took place today in and around downtown Nevada City.  The well established race is the second oldest cycling in the US and the oldest in the West.  Crowds came out, despite the heat, to cheer on the cyclists.  Congrats to Leece-Cal, English and Hutcheson, the top three finalists from the Men’s Pro race and Nash, Oliviera and Thornquist for their top three in the Women’s Pro.  Cody Kaiser took home the top spot for the Men’s 3/4th and the junior top three were Taylor, Ortenblad and Schaupp.  Congrats!  The Outside Inn was bestowed the honor of the 2012 Aleacha Tobiassen Outstanding Volunteer for our continued support of the event.  We thought it was the free lemonade & cookies that won over the judges, but I think years of donating prems for the cyclists and keeping our repeat guests happy and coming back might have had something to do with it.  Did you make it out to today’s event, what was your favorite part?

    Nice pics. But way to undercut the competition of all the kids selling lemonade (do kids still do that?).
