Two events coming up. The first, as the comments point out, is a cyclocross race.
Off Road: This year's Capital Cross Classic is scheduled for Dec. 3 at Lake Fairfax in Reston. The mountain-bike [sic] race covers a trail covered with grass and dirt with man-made and natural obstacles. For more information, visit http:/
Barter System: The 10th annual Stop Swap and Save event is scheduled for Feb. 4 at the Carroll County Ag Center in Westminster, Md. The event, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., features all sorts of bicycle vendors selling bikes, helmets and jerseys.
Shoppers can also trade their old cycling equipment for new stuff. About 350 vendors are expected. See http:/
