About the Witches Cup

For years Salem Cycles has been bringing the Witches Cup to Salem.      

In the cycling boom of the 1980's, Salem proudly hosted annual elite caliber bicycle races with national exposure. 

It's the goal of the Witches Cup organizers to revive the strong bicycle racing tradition in downtown Salem, Massachusetts. After a seven year lull, the Witches Cup under the direction of Salem-based promoters, returned in 2007.
