Phoenix Derby May 17! #bikedc #arlingtonva

The Phoenix Derby is around the corner!  Perhaps one of the zaniest bicycle races in the area, it involves a course that flies through the garages of Crystal City, includes hopping bails of hay, people dressed in unusual outfits, stopping and playing quick games of cards, and all types of mayhem.  It is a festival of the bi-zar.
The Crystal City Phoenix Derby is a unique cycling event that combines speed and high-energy fun in a cool urban environment while showcasing the D.C. region’s only youth-oriented bike nonprofit organization. We invite riders of all abilities to test their skills on our race course designed and built in an underground parking garage. The Crystal City Phoenix Derby features a variety of race formats including a non-competitive open course ride, a head-to-head stationary sprint race, team relays, and a special kid’s course. The general public is also invited to try out the course or just watch the action from the chic confines of the Phoenix Lounge, a display area of bikes build by Phoenix Bikes youth and bar built in the center of the action!
There will be all types of races, including kid races - and lots of volunteer opportunities.

The Phoenix Derby helps support local youth cycling organization Phoenix Bikes.
