Clear Water Classic
July 1 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
A Photo Scavenger Hunt Community Ride, Followed by a Food Truck/Beer Tent-powered Block Party at Lowes Creek! Sponsored by Visit Eau Claire This year, it won’t be your Grandma’s (unless she’s into niche things like pizza, beer, and music) packet pickup for the Red Flint Firecracker… we’re offering a new event to bring you and your family/friends out to Lowes Creek on Friday, July 1st: the Clear Water Classic!
What is it?
This go-at-your-own-pace/start-whenever community ride that begins and ends at Lowes Creek County Park will take riders (or runners!) of all abilities around the Eau Claire community to capture photos of some of our city’s most iconic landmarks, from the Pablo Center and Hank Aaron statue to local breweries like Modicum, The Growler Guys and the Brewing Projekt, to our amazing local sports shops like Shift Cyclery and Coffee Bar and Blue Ox Running. You’ll not only experience the cycling infrastructure that makes Eau Claire the envy of Midwest bike towns, but the great local businesses (and the awesome humans that run them) and attractions that beckon us out to the paths.Once you’ve finished your ride through town, head back to the Lowes Creek lot on the Expo Center side to pick up some delicious pizza from Firetruck Pizza and a beer or two at our beer tent (one free beer token available to any paid Virtual or In Person registrants), and settle in for some live music (more details to come ;)). Nothing like some Summer block party vibes to welcome the holiday weekend!
How do I Register?
While this is a free event, we do need you to register for waiver purposes. Note that any paid registration for the Virtual or In-Person Firecracker events will also include a registration for the Clear Water Classic AND one free beer token on Friday at the packet pickup party.
