Crystal City (Arlington, VA) – Crystal City’s Wednesday Night Spins garage bicycle race series returns this March with more competition, adrenaline, and speed. Registration is now open for the popular race series hosted by the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with Vornado/Charles E. Smith and Crosshairs Cycling. Due to popular demand, this year’s series includes a Women’s Open Race and a Fixed-Gear Only Finale.
With the unpredictable weather and a quiet local race calendar, March is the perfect time for pre-season training at Wednesday Night Spins. The course is fast and fun for riders of all abilities. Participants in each race category compete for weekly prizes as well as the series title by earning points each week for top finishes.
Those too timid for the saddle can still get in on the fun in the lounge which features a wine and beer garden hosted by the Washington Wine Academy with great race viewing and drinks.
Wednesday Night Spins is also partnering with Bikes for the World and includes a drop off point for donations of bikes and cycling gear. Donations help support cycling programs and transportation solutions across the globe.
To register or for additional information about the series, please visit www.crystalcity.org.
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.
Admission: Free for spectators to cheer on the racers, cash bar, race registrations and fees can be found online.
