DCCX cyclocross bike race at Armed Forces Retirement Home – Sunday, October 20th


From an email:

“The DCCX cyclocross bike race takes place this Sunday, October 20th at the Armed Forces Retirement Home (Rock Creek Church Road at Upshur St, NW). With over 700 racers already registered, DCCX will once again be one of the biggest cyclocross races in the country.

The day of racing begins at 8:15am and concludes with a “Rookie” race at 5:15pm. The course is centered around the fish pond on the lower grounds of the Soldier’s Home. It is a great course for spectators as racers are visible from almost any point on the course. There will also be a kids race course available throughout the day.

Come on out and enjoy food from Baja Fresh, PORC mobile, the DC Dutch Club as well as fresh coffee from Petworth’s own Qualia Coffee. Staples Corner Liquors, based in Crofton, Md., will be on site serving beer from Oskar Blues brewery.

Raleigh bicycles has donated a pro level Raleigh RXC Pro Disc cyclocross frameset (MSRP $2,000) which will be raffled off in the afternoon. Raffle tickets will be $5 and can be purchased at the race. Proceeds from the raffle and from DCCX will be donated to Friends of the Soldier’s Home, a neighborhood group that works to bring the Soldier’s Home residents together with the surrounding community.

Families and dogs are welcome. Dogs must be leashed. Free parking is available, but will be limited. Walking or biking onto the grounds is recommended. The weather looks to be sunny and in the mid-60s. Should be a beautiful day of bike racing and fun.

DCCX is organized by DCMTB, Washington DC’s only mountain bike team. We hope to see you on Sunday.”
