Fit & Fun |

Tonight marks the ninth-annual Cyclefest, billed as the "biggest Tour de France-inspired festival on the West Coast."

The event has a new location, the Seward Park Amphitheatre, and begins at 5 p.m. It will include racing until about 8 p.m.; family-friendly activities beginning at 5:30 p.m.; and a broadcast on a 20-foot screen of the Tour de France's mountaintop finish (Stage 17) at about 9:15 p.m.

There will be a beer garden and food booths as well as a drawing for a Lapierre bicycle.

Bring your chairs or blankets and a flashlight. Bike racks will be provided. When the races end, a one-mile loop road at the park's entrance will open and allow more parking spots.

The event, at 5895 Lake Washington Blvd. S., is hosted by the Cascade Bicycle Club. For more information:
