Culpeper Cycling Century is Fast Approaching!

Registration is going on NOW, so register early and don’t miss out on the opportunity to guarantee your t-shirt size! The first 500 participants will receive a long-sleeve event t-shirt. Only those registered by September 4th (mail / phone/ in person) or September 6th (online) will be guaranteed their requested t-shirt size. After September 6th all sizes will be given first registered, first served.

 

Registrations will be accepted on the day of the event, beginning at 6:30am. The group start will be at 8:30am.

 

We look forward to seeing you there!!!

 

 

P.S.

Yes, the planning committee knows that there are a couple of other large century rides this day. However, the Culpeper Cycling Century has, for the past 7 years, been on the first Saturday in October. This has not changed. When the date was set the first year, there were no conflicts with other century rides in the area. Since our first year, a couple of other rides have changed their dates, and are now conflicting with us. Yes, they are very large rides with a good following, however, many of our compliments come from the fact that we are a slightly smaller ride (less than 600 participants). So we are sticking with our date, and will continue to provide a high quality ride for those that don’t want to deal with thousands of other cyclist and just want a more fun and relaxed ride.
