If you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade like me, you may never have heard of the Univest Grand Prix. It wasn’t until recently I was informed that Montgomery County is home to the top ranked biking race by the USA National Cycling Calendar. In fact, there are only seven races sanctioned by the International Cycling Union across the United States, the Univest Grand Prix being one of them. Elite racers travel from all over the globe each September to take part in this two day event.
If you are looking for some excitement in the area this month, the Univest Grand Prix should be at the top of your list. An entire weekend of festivities (September 17-18) are planned around this event that spans both Montgomery and Bucks County. The main race starts at 11AM on Saturday, September 17th and features an extremely challenging 100 mile course around Souderton, Telford, & Franconia. At this time, Souderton will also be hosting a family expo in the downtown area which runs from 10AM-3PM to coincide with the race.
