22nd Annual Armed Forces Cycling Classic Returns June 1 and 2

The 22nd annual Armed Forces Cycling Classic, proudly brought to you by the Boeing Company, is the regions premier cycling event with fun for the entire family all cycling interests and abilities!

The weekend kicks off with our Challenge Ride, a non-competitive and traffic-free ride, Saturday morning in Crystal City. Participants enjoy a 10 km course, traveling past the Pentagon, up to Rosslyn and back. The event begins at 7 a.m. and all riders must be off the course by 10 a.m.

Riders completing 3, 6 or 9 laps will receive bronze, silver or gold finishers medals.

This year, we also invite participants of the Challenge Ride to help support our official beneficiary, TAPS. Those that raise more than $200 receive a limited edition TAPS cycling jersey.

Following the Challenge Ride on Saturday, professional and elite amateur teams from the U.S. and abroad, begin the weekends racing with the Crystal Cup. Then, the prestigious Clarendon Cup, will take place on Sunday in Clarendon, and will crown the weekends champions.
