If you haven’t made it to Circuit of Americas to ride your bike, fear not.

Holland Racing and Special Events, the Austin company that organized the series of Tuesday night rides at the racetrack, has extended the event through the end of June.

The Tuesday night rides, which are open to cyclists of all skill levels, have drawn as many as 800 cyclists, according to Andrew Willis, president of Holland Racing.

Intimidated? Don’t be. The Tuesday night events are rides, not races, on the twisting track. (Beware that first steep hill, however!)

The COTA series originally was to end on June 6. That means cyclists get three extra nights to pedal on the circuit.

Holland Racing also just signed a contract to hold four Saturday night criterium style races at COTA. Those races are scheduled for June 17, July 15, Aug. 19 and Sept 30.
