Formerly known as Wednesday Night Spins, Crosshairs Garage Races returns to Crystal City in March for five weeks of adrenaline-filled, bicycle racing in a parking garage.

The series challenges amateur and elite cyclists alike to compete weekly for prizes and points in pursuit of the “Petty Cup.” Named in honor of Joseph Petty, the former Crystal City BID employee and Crosshairs team member who conceived of the event, the Petty Cup is awarded to the racer in each category with the most points earned over the course of the first four weeks of the series. 

This year, the series closes on Wednesday, April 4th with a slightly more festive ambiance. Beginner, intermediate, and junior racers can still get into the competitive spirit, but the real match-ups occur with the Feds versus Contractors, the Cargo/Tandem/Bikeshare Show down, and the Fixed-Gear Finale. 

Those too timid for the saddle can always catch the excitement from the comfort of the sidelines while enjoying a beverage from the event’s pop-up bar.

Crosshairs Garage Races is hosted by the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with JBG SMITH and In The Crosshairs.

Registration is now open!
