More than 300 cyclists are expected to rule the roads once again as the 30th annual Twilight Criterium—one of the highlights of downtown Boise's summer calendar—is set for Saturday, July 16. But organizers of the Andersen Schwartzman Woodard Brailsford Twilight Criterium have redesigned this year's route.

The start and finish lines will be in front of the Idaho Capitol, the same spot of the inaugural Criterium 30 years ago, and the new route will circle Sixth, Ninth and Bannock streets. The Downtown Boise Association, co-producer of the race, said downtown merchants and restaurateurs are on board for the new route.

“The race is good for business, good for racers and, perhaps most importantly, good for our community,” said DBA Executive Director Lynn Hightower in Tuesday's announcement. “The Twilight brings friends and families together and, once again, downtown is proud to host the event.”

This year's Twilight Criterium hospitality area and marketplace expo will be held in Capitol Park, across from the Statehouse, providing food, beverages and booths for nonprofits and local vendors.
