In its 13 years, the San Rafael Twilight Criterium has become part carnival, part madhouse, part Thunderdome. It has reached a critical mass of energy that circles among crowds and riders, across announcer and DJ, and through the streets and community, only to feed into the reputation of the next year.
This is a party. This is a nightclub on wheels, outdoors, under streetlights as dusk falls on an idyllic cityscape of Northern California in the summertime. This is one of the best annual events in all the Bay Area.
