Putting a community’s two biggest events on the same weekend may sound like a recipe for disaster. In Doylestown Borough, Bucks County, combining an arts event and bike race has led to less disruption and more visitors. The Doylestown Arts Festival and the USA Cycling Pro Tour’s Thompson Bucks County Classic race came together about 16 years ago when the bike race was searching for a new location for the urban leg of its Tour de France-style event.
