On Course Support

Each route boasts mechanical, moto, SAG & medical support as well as aid stations with food & drink - one station on the 10- and 25-mile routes, two on the 50-mile route, and three on the 90-mile route. Riders should plan to carry enough food and water to ride between stations.

Velofest

Velofest is the East Coast’s largest standalone cycling expo & conveinently occurs the day before the ride at the VPCC. Even better, your registration gets you in free! Over 150 vendors will be peddling everything cycling related at incredible deals. It’s a great place to stock up on gear as dealers liquidate their inventory in order to make room for next years models. Fall Classic packet pickup will be onsite at the VPCC while Velofest is in full swing, so come pick up your bib and come check it out!

Timing & Awards

Awards information is coming soon!

The After-Party

Not only do you get a wonderful day of amazingly scenic cycling, but you’re also treated to an after-party, featuring FREE food for the participants. As if that weren’t awesome enough, riders 21+ also get tasty craft beer from our brewery partner. The best part? It’s all included with your registration! More details will be posted here as they become available.
