Charlottesville Criterium p/b The Dairy Market
USA Cycling Permit #5329
The Charlottesville Racing Club and UVA Cycling Club are proud to announce the Charlottesville Criterium and Bike Fest which will take place on Saturday, April 16 from 10 AM to 4 PM .
The course is a 6 corner course near downtown Charlottesville. There is one uphill kicker halfway through the course with a chicane at the top; and the finishing straight is on a wide 3% uphill drag. There are definitely attack points on this course with the opportunity to make the race exciting!
The course is located within a vibrant commercial and residential district that includes three nearby breweries, a German-style beer hall, bakeries, coffee shops, and a wide variety of restaurants, particularly at the Dairy Market. The event will kick off at 10 AM with a series of free junior races for boys and girls in the 9-14 and 15-18 age groups. At noon will be a Bike Parade where anyone in the community with a bicycle can join and ride a lap on the closed course, in addition to a “Dash Race” for younger children.
