According to what I was able to find on the DC Cyclocross page, the annual DCCX is scheduled for this weekend at the Armed Forces Retirement Home (entrance at the Upshur Street gate). The races are always fun to watch and a great way to spend a fall afternoon. If you are planning to go you can see the schedule of events here.
If you aren’t familiar with cyclocross, the following introduction is from their Website:
DCCX is the only cyclocross race in the nation’s capital, and over its eight-year run has grown into one of the largest races on the East Coast. Last year the race added two huge changes: it went from one day to a full weekend of racing, and it added CrossHairs as a sponsor. CrossHairs, which runs the popular Svenness website, joined DCMTB as one of the two clubs putting on the race. The race was run one direction on Saturday, and the opposite way on Sunday.
The year, the races are scheduled for Oct. 24th and 25th.
To give you an idea of what the races are like, below are some photos from previous years.
If you’re around this Sunday, October 4th, the Friends of the Soldiers Home and the Armed Forces Retirement Home are hosting their annual antique car show, fall fun fest, and Oktoberfest on the grounds of the home. Its a great way to embrace October and enjoy fall. See the flyer below for details or visit the Friends of the Soldiers Home Web site.
According to the Friends of the Soldiers Home Web Site, the weather for the Fourth of July celebration on the Armed Forces Retirement Home’s ground promises to be beautiful. Below is the flyer with details.
The third annual Spring Fling on the grounds of the Soldiers’ Home is this Saturday. The annual event has become a popular local way of enjoying the grounds of the Soldiers’ Home, meeting neighbors, and welcoming in spring. Last years event was attended by over 800 residents. You can read more about last year’s event on the Friends of the Soldiers Home Website.
