Race Regulations:

Hand-ups (food, tools, or supplies) are not allowed anywhere on the course. A rider may NOT take on any additional water or food at any time during the race.

Mechanical work, bike exchange, and wheel exchange may take place, but only within the designated pit lane. Riders may never cut across the course and may never backtrack along the course to get to the pit lane.

Road, mountain, and cyclocross bikes are allowed. Tires in the A group are restricted to a maximum width of 1.5” for 26”wheels and 35mm for all others. MTB handlebars must not have bar-ends. All bikes must have functional front and rear brakes. More details are available on the CXMB blog.

Riders are required to wear a hard-shell ANSI or SNELL approved helmet while racing, warming up, and cooling down.

Parking is available in the parking lot at 1867 Springfield Road. The race course is in the open area across the creek to the west of the parking lot.

Courtesy and Safety:
The park is a public area and the course will be marked, but marshals do not have authority to prevent people from entering. Harbour View is very popular with dog owners and sections of the park are designated off leash areas. Our course is not in an off leash area, but some park users allow their unleashed dogs to roam outside the designated areas. Keep your head up at all times. Be courteous to all park users. Please clean up after yourself.

The washrooms are located in the Clubhouse complex north of the parking lot. There is a Salisbury House restaurant in the Clubhouse, and they will have the coffee on for us all day.
