Harris-Roubaix

Where: Ride from Court Square, downtown Harrisonburg, leaving at 12:00pm Sharp!!

What: The Harris-Roubaix is another great, fun cycling event brought to you by SVBC.  It takes place every Spring on the same day as the Paris-Roubaix. The group leaves from the center of Harrisonburg at noon for a casual ride to a family farm about 7 miles to the north. From the farm there will be a 10-15 mile loop marked for your enjoyment. You are more then welcome to ride the loop once or more, and there is a informal 3-lap race that will crown the Champion of the Harris-Roubaix.

What type of bikes will there be?  One great thing about the Harris-Roubaix is the diversity of bikes. There will be folks on road bikes (durable 25c tires minimum suggested), mountain bikes, tandems, fixed-gears, single speeds and kids’ trailers.

What to bring: Your bike, items to change a flat, water, a smile and some food to share at the farm–if you bring a dish to share, pot-luck style, to Court Square before the ride,  SVBC will bring it out to the farm.

The roads of Roubaix  A majority of the Roubaix loop will be smooth gravel roads to the Northwest of Harrisonburg, located around the Singers Glen area. This area backs up on the Great North Mountain, so there may be several steep hill climbs.

Is this a group ride or a race?  It is a group ride to the farm. There, everyone will regroup and receive instructions about the loop and cue sheet if needed. Folks are welcome to ride at any pace.  The group will split up during the loop rides, with the race-heads battling it out for the crown while the majority enjoy the beautiful views of the north.

Does it cost anything?  Not to you.  The Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition covers the cost of sag support, snacks, beverages, markings and cue sheets. But please become a member and JOIN SVBC to show your support for this other local cycling events.

Super Bowl Ride

This is a chilly, sometimes just downright cold, annual group ride that takes place every year on the day of “The Big Game”, also known as the “Super Bowl.”  Before settling down to watch two teams battle over the pigskin, join your fellow cyclists for a winter climb to the top of Flagpole Knob (highest point in Rockingham Co.), and then descend back down on one of many exciting trails or roads. Not an SVBC-sponsored event.

Meet at the Briery Branch Community Center right of of Nazarene Church Road at 10am, OR ride from town for a full day of riding, meet at Mr. J's on 42 South at 8am? 

Definitely a mountain bike ride, if you are going all the way to Flagpole Knob. Be prepared for cold, snow, ice, and chundery dirt forest road!

The event will include a bike expo featuring representatives from the bike industry and other bike-related groups. 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.

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 http://www.super8cx.org/rulebook/). 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.super8cx.org 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.
