Many of you have heard that we (Pebble Beach/Pacific Grove club, Ghost Tree Racing) are bringing back the Butterfly Criterium to downtown Pacific Grove. This crit ran in the mid-1970s to early 1980s. It was a popular National Prestige Classic event.
We're putting this race on with the help of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce and the City of Pacific Grove to make it a fun enjoyable event for the whole family, not just the racers themselves. We'll have kids races for all ages, bouncy houses, BBQs and two parks line the course where families can relax and the kids can play. So if you come, bring the whole family.
We continually post updates at:
In addition, we update new primes, sponsors, and have some cool mementos from the 1970s races on our Twitter feed: ButterflyCrit
We're looking for people that rode the event in the late 70s as well. Email us off the link on the the bottom of our flyer page if you are one of the originals. We'd like to recognize you at the event this year. Thanks.
