Thursday Night Cycling Series
at Seward Park


Welcome to 2021 and a return to racing in Seward Park for the series' 31st iteration. This institution of bike racing in the PNW is proudly sponsored by Voler Premium Cycling Apparel. Voler have generously added to the series purse and provided nightly primes, as well as Leaders Jerseys for the 6pm and 7pm races.

The 2021 Series will run July 1 through September 23 given a later start date due to the end of COVID19 restrictions. Typically, races are held every Thursday evening from April through the end of August.

The Voler Seward Park Thursday Night Cycling Series provides racers of all abilities the opportunity to test their legs, brains, and luck against the competition. Three separate races are offered to give riders at different ability levels a more appropriate challenge. All participants must sign a race waver and pin on their WSBA numbers or rent a race number for the evening. See below or download the race flyer for details.
