Crystal City's signature bicycle race series in a parking garage takes over the G4 level of the parking garage at 201 12th Street S. Crosshairs Garage Races hosts races for elites and amateurs with participants in each category competing for weekly prizes.
On April 4, there will also be a fixed gear race, a cargo bike race, and a federal employees versus contractors race. The final week will also include the debut of Arlington Arts' the Arlington Art Truck, featuring a cycle-powered sound installation by artists Emily Francisco and Alex Braden titled Bipedal Soundscapes. Those too timid for the saddle can always catch the excitement from the comfort of the sidelines while enjoying a beverage from the event’s pop-up bar.
The Course: The route is designed as a criterium course (not a cyclocross race) - fast and dry with many turns and no dismounts.
