The Charlottesville Criterium and Bike Fest p/b The Dairy Market

The Charlottesville Racing Club and UVA Cycling Club are proud to announce the Charlottesville Criterium and Bike Fest which will take place on Saturday, April 29 from 10 AM to 4 PM on Preston Ave. and part of the Rose Hill neighborhood.

For more information, visit https://cvilleracing.com/races/charlottesville-criterium/. You'll find more detailed parking info, a restaurant guide to the neighborhood, and a list of teams competing in the crit.

You can also follow us on Facebook for updates (https://www.facebook.com/CvilleRacingClub) and @cvlebikefest on both Instagram and Twitter.


This is a fun, 6 corner course near downtown Charlottesville. There is one uphill kicker halfway through the course with a chicane at the top; and the finishing straight is on a wide 3% uphill drag. There are definitely attack points on this course with the opportunity to make the race exciting!


The course is located within a vibrant commercial and residential district that includes three nearby breweries, a German-style beer hall, bakeries, coffee shops, and a wide variety of restaurants, particularly at the Dairy Market. The event will kick off at 10 AM with a series of free junior races for boys and girls in the 9-14 and 15-18 age groups. At noon will be a Bike Parade where anyone in the community with a bicycle can join and ride a lap on the closed course, in addition to a “Dash Race” for younger children. 

Our aim is not only to bring a series of high-quality bike races to Charlottesville, but also fundraise for the local non-profit bicycle shop, Charlottesville Community Bikes. Charlottesville Community Bikes (CCB) promotes environmentally-sound transportation, recycles bicycles, and makes biking accessible to the local community. CCB believes equitable access to affordable, reliable bike transportation can be transformative to people in need.

For more information about Community Bikes and this fundraiser, please see the GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/f/charlottesville-criterium. Thank you for your support!
