PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Elite bicyclists will be hitting the road Sunday with spectators lining the roads to cheer them on in the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic.

The 12.3-mile route runs from the city through Manayunk, Roxborough, East Falls, Fairmount Park and Lemon Hill, beginning and ending at the infamous steep ‘Manayunk Wall.”

Eighteen teams are scheduled to compete in the men’s 110.7-mile race beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday. Nineteen teams will take part in the women’s 73.8-mile race beginning at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

Many road closures will be in effect during the race, including the entire length of Kelly Drive and the inner drive of Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
