North Star Bike Race Information

The North Star Bike Festival will result in street closures around the bike race route, with resulting impacts on traffic and parking, on Wednesday, June 14 starting at around noon and lasting until about 10 pm that evening.  Questions should be directed to the race organizer Brendon Hale at racedirector@northstarbikefest.com or 812-327-1776.  Organizers have indicated that the website will also be updated with information for residents and businesses in the affected area at www.northstarbicyclefestival.com.  In addition, the race organizers have applied for a sound level variance to allow amplified sound music from 4:30 pm to 9:30 pm that day.  The organizers are notifying neighbors within 300 feet of the sound source, and the City Council will be holding a public hearing on the request on June 7.  Comments can be sent to Councilmember Rebecca Noecker’s office at ward2@ci.stpaul.mn.us up until the day of the public hearing.
