2017 Harris-Roubaix

Harris-Roubaix

April 08 2018
Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA

The Harris-Roubaix is another great, fun cycling event brought to you by SVBC.  It takes place every Spring on the same day as the Paris-Roubaix. The group leaves from the center of Harrisonburg at noon for a casual ride to a family farm about 7 miles to the north. From the farm there will be a 10-15 mile loop marked for your enjoyment. You are more then welcome to ride the loop once or more, and there is a informal 3-lap race that will crown the Champion of the Harris-Roubaix.

What type of bikes will there be?  One great thing about the Harris-Roubaix is the diversity of bikes. There will be folks on road bikes (durable 25c tires minimum suggested), mountain bikes, tandems, fixed-gears, single speeds and kids’ trailers.

What to bring  Your bike, items to change a flat, water, a smile and some food to share at the farm–if you bring a dish to share, pot-luck style, to Court Square before the race,  SVBC will bring it out to the farm.

The roads of Roubaix  A majority of the Roubaix loop will be smooth gravel roads to the Northwest of Harrisonburg, located around the Singers Glen area. This area backs up on the Great North Mountain, so there may be several steep hill climbs.

Is this a group ride or a race?  It is a group ride to the farm. There, everyone will regroup and receive instructions about the loop and cue sheet if needed. Folks are welcome to ride at any pace.  The group will split up during the loop rides, with the race-heads battling it out for the crown while the majority enjoy the beautiful views of the north.

Does it cost anything?  Not to you.  The Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition covers the cost of sag support, snacks, beverages, markings and cue sheets. But please JOIN SVBC to show your support for this other local cycling events.
