Crystal City Spins

I'll keep this one short and sweet but wanted to share a pretty stellar concept that a local DC group "In the Crosshairs" held every Wednesday night this past March. With winter holding on for dear life, CXHairs worked with Crystal City Bid and the Vornado group to hold Crit races on the lowest level of a local parking garage. The local beer and wine store opened up a bar and spectators poured in to watch the madness ensue!
I was only able to race two of the four races but I had a blast! All races were co-ed and had an advanced, beginner, or elite option. Since I was SS I stuck with the beginner! I rode hard, and finished well. The best time, however, was watching the "Cargo, Tandem, Capital Bikeshare Race" the final week. Libations flowed freely and a great time was had by all! Hopefully we'll be able to have the races again next year!
