Women's Steady Road Ride

IMG_20190515_224213_155.jpg

Ride start time: 5:30pm

Location: Rocktown Bicycles

Length: 1.5 to 2.5 hours (maybe longer depending on light)

Distance: 25 to 40 miles (again depending on light available)

Required to Bring:  A working taillight, headlight, and flat repair kit

Ride pace: Steady; quicker than a social ride, we will be sitting somewhere in the 14-16mph range. This is not a "crush everyone" ride. I want to emphasize that. We are not out here to intimidate or "race". This ride is meant to bring women together to have fun, and encourage and challenge each other in a friendly environment.

Some notes on group riding:

  • We don't cross over the yellow line

  • On busier roads, we will ride single file, the widest we will ride is 2 riders next to each other, still riding more on the right side of the lane

  • If a car is coming up from behind the group, please call out "car back" for the group, we will go single file if necessary

  • On rural roads, we don't ride across the whole road

  • On rural roads, please call out "car up" if a car is coming the opposite direction

DIRTY KITTEN GRAVEL RACE - AUGUST 3, 2019 @ LOCUST HILL FARM & PRESERVE

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Locust Hill Farm encompasses over 5,000 continuous acres of privately-owned land. Only 90 miles from the center of Washington, D.C., the farm is surrounded by untouched, historic land and borders Cedar Mountain (a.k.a.

This race will explore Locust Hill Farm and Preserve on privately-owned gravel farm roads that run along the Robinson River, pass serene creeks and ponds, weave through open fields, and cross wooded forest trails. The area is truly a gravel enthusiast’s dream as well as a beautiful wildlife haven.

Event webpage: https://svbcoalition.org/5-18-inaugural-harrisonburg-mayors-bike-ride/

Event Info:

What: Our first Mayor’s Bike Ride in the spirit of past Bike Month “Ice Cream Rides” from years past. This is a fun and short (sub 5 mile) ride aimed at everyone but especially welcoming to families and children. We will ride as a group and keep everyone together. Harrisonburg Mayor Deanna Reed will lead the ride and help us set an annual tradition of a Mayor’s Bike Ride in our community.

When: Saturday, May 18 at 10 AM leaving from Harrisonburg City Hall 
409 S Main St, Harrisonburg, VA 22801

Where: Meet at 10 AM in front of Harrisonburg City Hall 409 S Main St, Harrisonburg, VA. You can view a map of the planned route by Clicking Here

Why: Bicycles are not only ridden by people in spandex on expensive bikes. We aim to celebrate all types of bike riding and have a renewed emphasis on celebrating those rides that are around town for all ages and in regular clothes. May is National Bike Month and our Mayor’s Ride is part of the Celebration. Our elected leaders are key in helping ensure our streets are for people and not only cars. We aim to help our elected leaders see the importance of prioritizing and allocating resources to ensure our streets are safe and welcoming for EVERYONE.

We will have a limited number of these bottles. They will be given out on a first come, first serve basis during each of the Women’s Cycling Week events (one bottle per person). We hope to see you at as many of our events as possible! :)

Rocktown Roller-Rama!

What is a roller race?

  • 250m all-out sprint on fixed gear bikes attached to steel bases

  • Simple head-to-head race. Winner moves on to next round

  • Times range from 15sec to 20sec

  • Once a rider gets up to speed, it becomes a race to see who has the fastest legs, not necessarily the strongest muscles

  • We remove the front wheel and bolt the bikes to the rollers, no need to balance

  • Leave your spandex at home, this is a party first, bike race second

Race #7 of the 2018 BikeReg Super Series - SERIES FINAL

Sunday, December 2, 2018, Lake Fairfax Park, Reston, VA

General Info

The 2018 Capital ‘Cross Classic is a USAC cyclocross event. All USAC rules and penalties apply. As the rider, you are responsible for knowing the rules for the race in which you are racing.

Beneficiary: Proceeds will benefit the Lake Fairfax Sustainable Natural Trail System program, which aims to build new sustainable trails and restore existing trails in Lake Fairfax Park.

Venue and amenities: The Capital Cross Classic course is located on the grounds of Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, Va. Heated restrooms, a food vendor and free drinking water will be available onsite throughout the day. Alcohol is prohibited in the park. There is a children’s playground located near the racecourse. As the event is a benefit for the park’s trails, attendees are encouraged to explore the miles of trails available in the park during their visit.

Parking: Parking is available in lots located off Lake Fairfax Drive in the park. Parking is free, IF course conditions are dry. However, the promoter reserves the right to institute a mandatory $2/vehicle parking fee if the course is soft or muddy and could suffer significant damage during the event. Capital ‘Cross Classic is a benefit for trail building and maintenance and it is the goal of the promoters to leave no trace of our use of the park. All damage to the park [turf, etc] will be paid for with proceeds from the race. If a parking fee is instituted, those funds will only be used to repair the course and/or benefit trails. Announcements regarding a parking fee will be made on the BikeReg.com registration page prior to the race. All racers and other attendees are encouraged to bring $2/vehicle to the race, just in case.

Team Parking: Team parking is available in close proximity to the racecourse. Please contact the promoter no later than one week in advance for team parking reservations. Team parking spots will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

Warm-ups: For the safety and courtesy of all racers, warming up on the course during races is prohibited. Violators will be disqualified. The course will be open for warm-ups during the 15 minutes preceding each race, if no racers remain on course.

Staging Procedure: Riders will fill the starting grid by bib number, 8 riders at a time, as specified in the USA Cycling Cyclocross rulebook when so directed by the officials; the officials will fill any gaps left by DNS or late-arriving riders as appropriate. All riders must assemble in the pre-staging chute no later than 10 minutes before their start. Riders arriving late to staging will be staged at the back of the starting grid.

Call-ups: You MUST pre-register if you want a call-up. All pre-registered riders with points will be staged on the grid, by bib number, in position corresponding with staging rules for their respective categories (See Super Series rules for staging guidelines by category at www.superseriescx.com). Remaining riders will be staged by bib number, in the order of registration. All categories will reserve four spots in the third row, which are to be used for promoters' discretionary call-ups.

Barrier Primes: Prizes will be awarded to the first racer in each field to clear the barriers cleanly on the first lap. For combined fields or fields that start simultaneously, one winner will be determined for that group. Winners MUST report immediately to the finish/podium area to claim their prizes. This will take place immediately after you finish. Failure to do so will result in a forfeit of your prize. Primes will be judged by race staff, not USA Cycling officials.

Series Points: Points are awarded for BikeReg Super Series rankings for some categories. See the Super Series website www.superseriescx.com for full details about rules and regulations for series points.

Podium Finishers: The top finishers in every event MUST report immediately to the finish/podium area for awards and interviews. This will take place immediately after you finish and only last a few minutes. Failure to do so will result in a forfeit of your prizes.
