All Spun Up - Rogers Cycling Festival brings cyclists to town for serious fun`

Courtesy Photo The Rogers Cycling Festival includes events in a multitude of environments -- from mountain biking to paved surfaces to gravel roads, the festival offers a chance for bicyclists of all skill levels to participate.

When Greg Lindley and Matt Crafton were first approached by the Rogers Chamber of Commerce to bring a biking element to the Frisco Festival more than five years ago, the avid cyclists rose to the occasion by creating two unique events -- Race for the Spike and Frisco 5 Poker Ride. Both events were so successful that, in 2015, the duo were able to create the Rogers Cycling Festival, a three-day event focused solely on their favorite sport. It has since exploded into a nationally known spectacle with nine different races -- two of them sanctioned by USA Cycling, the governing body for bicycle racing.
