Brompton U.S. Championship Weekend

You may have heard that the U.S. Brompton Championship Race will be held for the first time in Washington, D.C. this year!  (It's about time!!)   It's pretty exciting, and BicycleSpace will be hosting a weekend of events to check out.  One admission price covers all events - - you can choose to attend one or all of the events.  Here's a link to the events that will be "unfolding" (ha!):   

http://www.eventbrite.com/e/brompton-us-championship-2014-hosted-by-bicyclespace-tickets-11282096053 

For starters, there will be a reception/party at the British Embassy on Friday,
July 11, from 6:00-8:00 p.m., where you can partake of food/drink and pick up your race packet.

Saturday, July 12, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. there will be a Brompton Urban Challenge, which is a citywide scavenger hunt. :)

Sunday, July 13, there will be a Social Ride (departing from BicycleSpace) to the Brompton Race Event.  The race will begin at 12:30 p.m., with other events following.  The top racers (1 guy, 1 gal) will be flown to London to participate in the Brompton World Championship Race!  Even if you're not a hardy racer, it's fun to participate in the race, which is about 6 miles long, around the area of the RFK Stadium.

Once you sign up for the weekend event, you will be sent emails and information from BicycleSpace.

So, come out and enjoy the fun and fanfare!!  Look forward to seeing you there!!!

    I am all signed up and will be picking up my packet at BicycleSpace. I don't own a collar shirt or blazer but hope to participate in the 6 miles.

      Hi Jackie - - actually, the Official Rules say that you must wear a tie, button-down collar shirt and blazer. I don't think they will let you in the race otherwise...... Perhaps you can borrow the items from a friend?
