The event asks riders to climb the hill on historic Olive Street in the city.

The Classic criterium race did not go off this year because of the pandemic, so cyclists were happy that part of the event made a comeback.

"Wiped. It was a blast. Good time. You're coming up, and by the time you got to the third lift, with the cobblestone, it gets hard," said Owen Worozbyt, a participant from Dunmore.

New this year: after the bikes did the climb, the Electric City Classic welcomed runners to scale the hill in Scranton.
