When - 18 Oct 2020 8:00 AM (EDT)
Location - Dixon Park; 1300 Dixon St, Fredericksburg, VA 22401
While the Fondo may have been changed to be self-paced and unsupported this year, we still plan to ride it on the previously scheduled dates. If you had not registered for the Fondo but are interested in riding it, join us at Dixon Park. This will be an unsupported ride and you will not get the Fondo swag (unless you had registered) but you will be able to enjoy the routes for it.
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.
