Venue Access & Parking

Spectators and participants alike will be charged a $15 venue access fee. This low fee provides access to Riverside Park for all racing days, including Sunday’s elite races, as well as parking which is a short walk to the park. Anyone purchasing vendor or team space on the venue will receive two wristbands included in the purchase. This access fee helps offset our local organizing committee’s expenses for hosting the event. Purchase your access wristband here. Logistics of wristband pick-up are still being worked out and we will let you know soon how to pick up your wristband.

Volkswagen to provide preferred parking to VW owners

Volkswagen wants to show their appreciation to current owners and those renting Volkswagen vehicles at Cyclocross Nationals by providing preferred “VWIP Parking” Thursday Jan. 5 through Sunday Jan. 8.  Those attendees that drive their Volkswagen vehicle to the event will have access to the preferred VWIP parking area as long as space is available. VWIP Parking will be available Thursday January 5 through Sunday January 8 from 7:00 am – 4:00 pm on a first come first served basis as space is limited.  Volkswagen VWIP parking will be located in the main parking lot off of Market and Pequot St. closest to the Riverside Park Overpass bridge.
