Kids race bikes through streets of West Chester


WEST CHESTER >> Doing their best to ignore a driving rain, late afternoon children bikers kicked off the Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic.

Several dozen child riders during the West Chester Dental Arts Kids’ Race biked through downtown borough streets prior to the Iron Hill Men’s Race and Braumbaugh Wealth Management Pro Women’s Race.

The Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic is the only professional sporting event held in Chester County.

The business community organizes the annual event to promote Southeastern Pennsylvania and spark local tourism.


Mark Yoder, president and CEO of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, said late afternoon that the rain would not halt any of the planned events.

“It’s a great day,” Yoder said. “The rain put a little bit of a damper on it but we’re still excited.”
