Anyone know of any bike races or TT's in the general vicinity? From what I have found, there is a weekly crit near Greenbelt starting later in the spring. Anything else?
My boss just told me about a family-friendly 20 mile bike race if you're looking for something like that. It's called Bike DC on May 22nd. www.bikedc.net
It seems more like a fun, local DC thing as opposed to a competitive bike race, but I've never done it before, so I'm not exactly sure.
http://www.mabra.org should have all the info you need.
Air Force Cycling Classic and Clarendon Cup are two of the better known ones.
And Andy's regular Saturday morning long ride. :)
Church Creek TT is held in Cambridge, MD, a couple times a year (June and August).
See http://abrtcycling.com/events for details.
Yes, the MABRA calendar www.mabra.orghas the most information on local races, but you should also check out www.bikereg.com. If you are new to cycling, you would be racing Cat 5 (Category 5) which always fills up very quickly in our area, usually the first day registration opens.
If you are looking for TTs (which won't fill up as fast, if at all), here are the MABRA events in our area:
Deep Blue TT 4/9
Boonesboro TT 5/22
Church Creek 5/28
Church Creek 7/23
Deep Blue 8/7
The Greenbelt Series is a training series on Wednesday nights. It's also on BikeReg. You can always sign up last minute for those, but not *at* the race.
