2012 marks the launch of this high quality series of criteriums (spectator-friendly competitive cycling events) and cycling road races in towns, villages and the rural countryside of Chester County, Pennsylvania. Each event will feature exciting races for amateurs, elite women and professionals, mostly held on downtown circuits of one mile or less. Designed to bring people into town on a summer evening, the entertaining 4 to 5 hour criteriums will include music, professional announcing, celebrity appearances, youth races and more. Chester County horse country will be the backdrop for the Chesco Time Trial, Road Race and July 4th Holiday Barbeque. The Chesco Grand Prix will be an annual week-long festival that celebrates cycling, showcases Chester County and promotes the National Velodrome being planned for Coatesville.

The Phoenixville event, the third of the series, begins at 2pm with the professionals beginning their race at 6:10.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
