Cycling has grown in popularity amid a social climate that puts a focus on health. The Sunny King Criterium takes cycling to a whole new level and features amateur and professional racers alike. This race, which takes place right in our hometown, kicks off the official USA Cycling Pro Road Tour!
Hundreds of races make their way to Anniston to take part in the premiere race. The Criterium is a lap race which means attendees will see cyclists of all ages and backgrounds flying at speeds up to 35 mph. The Sunny King Pace Car will lead the way!
The course is closed to traffic and stretches about a mile in distance. Sharp turns make for an exciting race as racers exceed the 30 mph mark with relative ease. The Sunny King Criterium will cover the square in downtown Anniston.
Cyclists will lap the course for a set number of minutes and the first to cross the finish line on the last lap prior to time running out is the winner.
This year’s race will be livestreamed through www.annistoncycling.com and a variety of other cycling websites. Brad Sohner will commentate the show while Frankie Andreu will host in a crowd of spectators.
We here at Sunny King Honda are pumped for the Sunny King Criterium this April!
The Noble Street Festival is coming up fast which means it’s time to loosen your waistband and hit the road! The festival features a dozen of the community’s best restaurants as well as plenty of other attractions. Bike races, live music, and regional artists will be a part of the festival so this is certainly something you don’t want to miss.
“Taste on Noble” is a signature attraction of the festival and features delightful dishes from 12 area restaurants. Tickets can be purchased from BB&T tents throughout the festival. Be sure to use what you pay for as they can’t be refunded.
Some of the more well-known restaurants include Bonnie Ray’s Bake Shoppe, in business for 23 years, and Mata’s Greek Pizza, open since 1980. Attendees will enjoy a wide variety of foods, including ribs, cookies, cupcakes, pizza, and much more!
Art will be on display at 930 Noble Street. Regional artists and JSU students will have their artwork for sale. There will even be line demonstrations and a community-involved project as well.
The Scion KidZone will feature a number of fun activities for kids, including a duck pond, rock climbing wall, face painting, and snow cone machine.
We here at Sunny King Honda can’t wait to attend the Noble Street Festival this year!
