The bicycle race is part of the Intelligentsia Cup road racing series held over 10 days in different locations across the region. Organizers hope to create a "block party" atmosphere for the event, which is making its debut in downtown Mundelein this year.

Artist applications are due by Wednesday, June 30. Spots are first come, first serve.
