Plan to get off of work a bit early and join over 200 riders for four spectacular weekdays of racing starting on June 1st. Pitched as a race “in your own backyard”, the W@W features a very down-home and earthy venue. We are keeping the series as grassroots as you can get. But don’t let that fool you, The Bike Lane Team members have done more racing in their 20+ year history then most of the Wednesday riders will do in a lifetime. And they show this through a simplified, yet highly organized event, that allows for enough riding categories to give everyone a fighting chance.
The Wednesday at Wakefield race is a community-oriented race series. Our volunteer staff works closely with our local IMBA club, Mid Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts (MORE), to make sure that we have fun singletrack to race that is great for everyone from juniors to beginners to elite racers. We also partner with Trails for Youth, who run the Youth Races early in the evening. A portion of the proceeds from W@W goes to MORE and Trails for Youth.
