Our Mission

Inspiring our community to experience the joy of bicycling and movement.

Who We Are


Indy Criterium, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of eight volunteer board members who serve year-round to organize and support our signature programs, the Indy Criterium Bicycle Festival and Mass Ave Criterium.

We are a group of civic-minded individuals with backgrounds in education, event management, sales, engineering, human resources, IT, business, and non-profit management. 


The Indy Criterium traditionally takes place on the second Saturday in July and is a one-day “celebration of all things bicycling”.  

Over $170,000 has been donated to local charities since 2010.

Our Goals

The mission of Indy Criterium, Inc. is to positively impact the central Indiana community by:

  • Organizing and managing high quality bicycling events and festivals;

  • Promoting urban recreation, sport, and healthy lifestyles; and

  • Utilizing proceeds from these events to assist other charities who serve to improve the Indianapolis community, specifically those charities with a focus on serving youth with mentoring, health, or physical fitness programs.
