Cliff Drive Classic in Northeast

More than 400 cyclists converged on the Concourse and Cliff Drive to race in the 10th annual Cliff Drive Classic.

With several heats and hundreds of riders, Cliff Drive and several surrounding roads near Concourse Park and The Kansas City Museum were close to traffic as the cyclists took seven laps around the hilly Cliff Drive early Saturday morning.

The race is one leg of a three-part race that take cyclists to different portions of the city.

Here are some photos from Saturday's event:

A little rain did not stop cyclists in the Master Race as they made their way up the reconstructed portion of Cliff Drive near the Benton Boulevard entrance.

The Scenic Byway, now car free on the weekends, got one of its first major events this past weekend with the Cliff Drive Classic bicycle race.
