Challenge Ride Route
(NOTE: Ride is Saturday morning, not Sunday!! New this year!)
Saturday, June 1st The route is approximately 10km (6.5 miles) in and around the Pentagon, Crystal City and Rosslyn, closed to traffic. Participants can complete as many laps as they can, for up to 3 hours, either as a Standard Registrant or as part of the Thales Corporate Challenge Team We will also track the performance of all those participating from our military in the Navy Federal Credit Union Armed Forces Cycling Challenge. You do not have to start at 7am, as you can check in up to 8am - it just all depends on how many laps you want to complete by 10am.
IMPORTANT: Please keep an eye on your lap times! Due to Arlington County road closure permits, we have to be strict with the 3 hour time limit. Therefore, we will not allow participants to begin another lap if there isn’t enough time remaining to complete a full lap. The fastest riders take approximately 20 minutes to complete a lap. To facilitate this, we will send out the pace car and a broom wagon, traveling at the pace of the fastest lap. If the pace car catches you, you will be asked to leave the course or board the broom wagon which we will bring you back to the S/F line.
