Fredericksburg Cyclists is a cycling community founded in 1984 and incorporated in 1989 to foster safe riding, social activities and social events among road cyclists in the Fredericksburg area. We are a medium-sized community hosting at least three (3) group rides weekly. See upcoming events below and join us for our next ride!
Our signature event, the “Cannonball” century, is hereby cancelled for 2020 due to concerns regarding the spread of the virus. Refunds have been issued and may be expected by September 18th.
When - 18 Oct 2020 8:00 AM (EDT)
Location - Dixon Park; 1300 Dixon St, Fredericksburg, VA 22401
Description - Historic Fredericksburg is situated midway between Washington D.C. and Richmond along the I-95 corridor. The event starts and finishes in Dixon Park on the banks of the Rappahannock River and features gently rolling hills throughout Stafford and Spotsylvania counties and past Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park, marking the spot of four bloody Civil War battles. Fredericksburg has a growing reputation among east coast cyclists due to its scenic rural roads and historic downtown with its brick sidewalks, one-of-a-kind restaurants, art galleries and numerous restored 18th- and 19th-century buildings.
Now in its third year, Fondo Fredericksburg attracts both recreational and competitive cyclists who choose from one of three distances: 30 miles, 50 miles or 75 miles. The two-day event is comprised of a retail expo, athlete check-in and late registration on Saturday followed by the rides on Sunday. Each event culminates with a food truck & craft beer festival and live music.
Phase 3 is now in effect; Please continue to follow the guidelines below:
