A change in direction for downtown Beaufort's annual Cycling Classic?


Downtown Beaufort was just witness to the fifth annual Beaufort Memorial Cycling Classic — and if you missed it, that may well be thanks to the odd timing of the event: a Tuesday afternoon.

Still, organizers seem pretty happy about the turnout but are more concerned about slack sponsor dollars and are considering moving the event to a weekend or perhaps joining up with another more high-profile event.

The Island Packet has a report on the idea and why some say it could be a good way to draw a different mix of visitors into downtown; read that report here.
