The City of McKinney and McKinney Velo invite you to the seventh annual Bike the Bricks Criterium... in Historic Downtown McKinney on Friday evening, May 27, 2016.

Some will be trying to grab a share of the $25,000 plus prize money, for others it’s a test of survival.

Bike The Bricks is the most highly recognized and prestigious criterium bike race in all of Texas. To put it simply, it’s a professionally produced event of the highest caliber that draws a diverse and dedicated audience- all done in a socially responsible environment.
Bike The Bricks offers sponsors the ability to reach a targeted audience in the most personal way. It’s that connection to a high energy and fast paced event where people are enjoying themselves that allows your message – whether simply through logo exposure or through personal interaction at a booth – to reach them at a positive time.
Come face-to-face with your target market through on-site opportunities…sampling, giveaways, register-to-win promotions and more.
Bike The Bricks sponsorships have various levels designed to fit any budget. Whether you are looking for presence as the title sponsor of the event or perhaps our entertainment stage, or just wanting to enjoy signage on the race course, opportunities abound for you at Bike The Bricks!
