On September 26, bicycles will rule downtown Denton, as race promoter Christian Williams and the Denton Sports Commission hold the Sam Bass Bicycle Challenge. My dog and I have previously watched the race from the courthouse lawn, and I loved it, but the event was never well-publicized. Until now. It’s a luxury to have a race pass through the historic downtown, and it’s completely free to the public. If you want to drink beer, eat food, and watch the race fly by, check out the Industrial St Beer Garden info below.
Although the course doesn’t wind around the courthouse this year, it makes a loop just east of the square.
Additionally, the Industrial St Guild (Dan’s Silverleaf, Seniors in Motion, Roosters, Fuzzy’s) are hosting a Beer Garden patio for race spectators on the parking spots along Industrial. They’ll have food, beer, music, and it’ll be a nice place to watch the racers go by. Querencia Community Bike Shop is providing free bike-valet service.
