Connecticut bicycling organizations, the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program (CCAP) and Team 26 are partnering to host a cyclocross bicycle event to begin at 9 am on Saturday, December 21, at Fairfield Hills.
All ages and skill levels are invited to participate — or be a spectator — at this fun and competitive bicycling event. The course will be held on a two-mile circuit with surfaces ranging from pavement to grassy fields to dirt trails. Cyclocross and mountain bikes without bar-ends are recommended.
Helmets are mandatory.
Vendors will be present to sell food and hot drinks, and display bicycling products and services.
Proceeds from the race will directly support CCAP, an organization that engages and supports youth in cycling; and Team 26, an organization that rides from Sandy Hook to the nation’s capital in support of common sense gun safety legislation.
Newtown Cyclocross is a USAC sanctioned event and the final race of the Connecticut Series of Cyclocross points series.
Race registration fees vary by category, from $10 to $30.
Day-of registration will open at Fairfield Hills at 7:30 am, and fees will be increased by $5 in each category Saturday morning.
