Armed Forces Retirement Home Hosting 2011 DC Cyclocross this Sunday

If you love cyclocross, or simply want to spend some time on the grounds of the old Soldiers’ Home enjoying the races, the DCCX-V 2011 races will definitely be of interest to you. It’s this Sunday, October 23, 2011, with the first race starting at 8:30 a.m. This is D.C.’s only cyclocr0ss race.

According to the event’s Web site: “We have a full day of CX racing lined up for 18 categories of riders, everything from Elite Men and Women to the popular Lil Beligans kid’s races. First timers (and late-to-register cat 4s)  are encouraged to try the Rookie Race at 4:15 pm. Please arrive early if you are racing. Registration closes 30 minutes before each race start.”

The DCCX is open to the public. To access the grounds, show up with your ID for the security at the gate and say that you are going to the bike race. The race is held down by the ponds (southwest corner of the ground, see map below). There will be signs directing attendees and attendants to assist with parking.

    Dogs are permitted, but must be on a leash at all times. If your dog is spooked by large crowds, bicycles, or small children, it may be best to leave them home. We have always had a number of dogs on-site in the past, and there have never been problems. Thanks.
