March granted us five Wednesdays this year, which meant week four of racing at Crystal City BID’s Wednesday Night Spins was not the last time we will see everyone in the garage for 2016. Because we mix it up with a cargo/tandem/bike-share/anything-goes race and a fixed-gear race on the final night, it meant that two of our categories had their series finales in week four. The hotly contested women’s series will finish up this week.
This coming Wednesday is the Spins night you don’t want to miss. Guaranteed to be a great time even if you just come out to witness the spectacle. If you are ready to race, register for all of the fun here: www.bikereg.com/crystal-citywednesday-night-sprints. But even if you don’t race, come out to watch, eat, cheer and drink. It’s going to be a good one, guaranteed.
We’ve had some people saying they couldn’t find the event. The address is below but here’s a good tip for when you arrive: If you are driving, enter the parking garage after four for free parking. Once you get your ticket at the entrance of the garage, take a tight right turn and head down the “permit only” ramp. Once you get to the G3 level you can park and then walk down the ramp to G4.
Address for the event is:
2345 Crystal Drive Parking Garage – G4 Level
.25mi from Crystal City connection of Mount Vernon Trail
Blue and Yellow METRO Lines to Crystal City Station
Free parking after 4:00 PM in Crystal City garages
