Bike Night at Circuit of the Americas
Aug 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Oct 20, 2020
On Tuesday nights throughout the summer and fall, cyclists will have the opportunity to clip in and navigate COTA’s 3.4-mile circuit at Bike Night powered by Ascension Seton. The weekly event lets riders cruise COTA’s famed stars and stripes in a socially-distant and stress-free environment without the worry of city traffic while offering fantastic sunset views of the COTA tower and Austin skyline. After the ride concludes, cyclists can replenish and recharge with a social distant tailgate with fellow riders in our Paddock parking lot.
