Ride for Fun - Honor a Veteran

9th Annual Cycle Fest - Sunday, September 16, 2018

Register by June 5 to save big!


Enjoy a friendly, supported ride through scenic Virginia countryside. You’ll see beautiful scenery, the occasional cow/horse/goat, and many happy cyclists. With three distances to choose from, there is a route for riders at every level. The mostly flat 18 mile course is prime for riders’ first organized event or a moderate ride. The 44 mile and 64 mile courses provide many bold hills and descents for experienced riders who relish a challenge. All rides launch from and finish at Molon Lave Vineyards near Warrenton.

The event benefits veterans and their families through support of IMPart (Injured Military Personnel +art), a visual arts education program which connects returning wounded veterans with transformative art experiences in ceramics and metals. A program of local, non-profit The Art League, IMPart is part of CREATIVE FORCES - NEA Military Healing Arts Network.

Apres ride - A Celebration after the Finish Line
After the ride, participants, friends and family are invited to chill at Molon Lave.
