Cyclo cross race at Lake Fairfax Park

The Capital Cross Classic race was held on Sunday Dec. 7 at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston. The course "is roughly 3.1k in length and consists of a paved start and finish, grass and hard pack terrain, a paved descent and some off camber turns. The course will have one man-made obstacle and 2 natural obstacles." The man-made obstacle was a series of large wooden beams placed on the route at the bottom of a very steep uphill section. There was one person who was able to hope the beams and ride uphill, but most riders hopped off their bikes and ran to the top of the hill.

Lake Fairfax is very bike accessible by riding on neighborhood streets through Reston to the Park entrance. There is even an entry point off the W&OD Trail at Michael Faraday Ct leading to an unpaved trail into the park. There was a small but hearty crowd braving the freezing temperature and strong wind to see one of the few organized bike races in Fairfax County.
