The sprawling countryside of Stafford and Fauquier counties near Fredericksburg provides the ideal site for a fun, safe day of recreational bicycling. Secluded woodland roads, ranches and farms form the backdrop for Fredericksburg Cyclist's 21st annual Cannonball Century. Plan for a longer visit to historic downtown Fredericksburg with craft breweries, antique shops, unique family-owned restaurants as well as civil war era attractions, recognizing a pivotal time in our Nation's history.
In the spirit of community and giving, the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank is our charitable partner for this year's event. A portion of the proceeds from event registration will assist them in their mission to feed those in need.
Start & end at Curtis Memorial Park at 58 Jesse Curtis Lane Hartwood, Virginia, northwest of Fredericksburg, at the main pavilion.
Three route options include a half-metric, metric and century.
Support is provided throughout the ride and at five rest stops to equip you along the way. We'll have clear cue sheets and road markings - so you won't get lost in a cornfield!
Other activities are available from Curtis park including playgrounds, golf, disc-golf, fishing, field activities and hiking. Historic downtown Fredericksburg offers unique dining, breweries, shops and tours. Don't forget to stop by Carl's Frozen Custard or one of three area bicycle shops.
