Mundelein Grand Prix Bicycle Race Event July 22


The Mundelein Grand Prix, presented by Tighthead Brewing Company, is a professional and amateur bicycle race as part of the nationally renowned Chicago Grit race series. Races are held in a "criterium" format, meaning that racers will compete together on a short circuit racecourse in Downtown Mundelein and complete as many laps as possible within the allotted time. Once one race finishes, another begins shortly thereafter.

There will be almost nonstop racing from 10:20 AM to 8:00 PM. With tight turns and fast straightaways, races are always a thrilling spectacle! But this day is more than just about bike races: a beer garden, children's games, a community ride, live music, art activities, and more will make the Mundelein Grand Prix an event the whole community can enjoy.

  • Time: 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (pro races from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM)
  • Location: Downtown Mundelein (Seymour Avenue, Hammond Street, Chicago Avenue, Archer Avenue, Division Street)
  • Best Places to Watch: Start/Finish Line; Plaza Circle
  • Cost: Free for spectators
  • Parking: Metra Station Parking Lot. Overflow parking at Mundelein Shopping Center to the south of the racecourse (Morrison's Laundromat, Just for Fun Roller Rink). Please be courteous of our business neighbors and private parking lots.
