Richmond awash in cycling events this weekend

This might be the best weekend of the year if you’re a Richmond-area cyclist/fan of cycling. On Saturday there’s Richmond’s first Gran Fondo, the Sports Backers-produced Martin’s Tour of Richmond. Riders can choose between 29-, 59- and 102-mile options. All ride distances end at the Richmond International Raceway Complex for a party, complete with band, food and drink.

But wait, there’s more! Also going off on Saturday, and continuing through Sunday is the Richmond Festival of ‘Cross. On Saturday, racers in a dozen categories will descend on Bryan Park in search of cyclocross glory. On Saturday, they’ll hit the cobbles of Chimborazo Park for some more dirty fun.

If you’ve never heard of cyclocross, or you’ve have and always wondered what it is about, this is a great chance to see it up close. You’ll get a look at some of the best riders in the area. Racing starts from at 9:30 and runs to about 3:30 each day. Food and drink will be available to purchase.


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
