Downtown Indy, Inc.'s HandleBar Hot Lap

Does your team have what it takes to take on other Downtown Indy businesses in a 48-team HandleBar race? Form your team and get them revved up for the HandleBar Hot Lap!

Races are structured as one-on-one laps around Monument Circle, including a pit stop for vehicle tweaks. The 48-team single elimination bracket will narrow down Indy’s best and culminate in a championship race between the top two teams, ending before 5 p.m.

There is also a "loser's bracket" to continue the fun for the teams eliminated on their first race.

Spectators are invited to come out during their lunchbreak and early afternoon and witness fun HandleBar races. Food trucks and music will be on site.  Competitors and spectators can enjoy a Beer  & Wine Garden on Monument Circle.

Monument Circle

Our beloved Monument Circle is the true heart of Downtown Indianapolis. Often filled with life on the lunch hour or during one of the many events that happen year round, it's truly a must-see for anyone visiting the Circle City.Check out the observation deck at the top of Soldiers and Sailors Monument.  Admission is Free if you walk the stairs or $2 to take the elevator ($1 for kids age 6 - 18). The Soldiers & Sailors Monument also houses the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum on the lower level and a small gift shop at promenade level.
