- Brochure: 2023 Corporate Challenge
Every summer the Valley Preferred Cycling Center hosts an incredibly unique cycling competition – The Corporate Challenge – bringing local organizations and corporations from across the Lehigh Valley together for a fun-filled night of (mostly!) good-natured competition for the Championship Trophy and, more importantly, bragging rights! Fellow employees pack the stands to cheer on their co-workers in a night of boisterous competition.
Unlike other Corporate Challenge type events that are one-offs – The Corporate Challenge at the VPCC provides teams with several weeks of on-the-bike practices and training – making sure that everybody has a safe and fun experience racing on the track. Track cycling experience is not required. Our USA Cycling licensed coaches will be there to help from the very first time you hop on a track bike right up until race night.
The cost is only $500 per team, with proceeds supporting our youth cycling programs. The cost includes race entry, coached training sessions, track bike rental, and 25 race night tickets – a $250 value.
