Crystal City's signature bicycle race series in a parking garage returns this March. Taking over the G3 and G4 levels of the parking garage at 201 12th Street S., Wednesday Night Spins hosts races for elites and amateurs with participants in each category competing for weekly prizes and points in pursuit of the Series Title.

On the final Wednesday of March, there will also be a fixed gear race, a cargo bike race, and a a new addition of the federal employees versus contractors race.

Those too timid for the saddle can still get in on the fun in the lounge which features a wine and beer garden with select offerings from the Crystal City Wine Shop.


The Course: The Wednesday Night Spins subterranean course is laid out within an empty parking garage. The route is designed as a criterium course (not a cyclocross race) - fast and dry with many turns and no dismounts. View a course map online.
