The race lasts a few hours, but there is a whole lot of other stuff going on this weekend.The race may start and end at the Art Museum, but you could say it lives and dies in Manayunk.

The 17-degree climb up Levering Street in that riverside neighborhood is a signature part of the Philadelphia race. Down on Main Street, there will be special events all weekend long.

Expect a big party on race day, along the business district, and through the neighborhood streets.

6abc live coverage of the Philadelphia International Cycling Championship begins on Sunday at 9am.
