It might be hard to believe that the Washington DC Metro area has any quiet parks, however, Wakefield Park is one of those hidden destinations that only the locals know about. It is a must for anyone looking to mountain bike here, and if you’re lucky, you can plan your recreation vacation just in time to race there too!
Every Summer, the Potomac Velo Club turns four Wednesday afternoons in a row into a backyard bike fest that can only have one name: Wednesdays at Wakefield! Now in its 15th year, Wednesdays at Wakefield is one of the few mid-week mountain bike races in the country.
The series just completed race #3, but not without its challenges. Mainly the arrive of rain right in the middle of the race. Learn what goes into the decision to continue the race or stop it before things get out-of-hand.
