Competitive climbs up iconic Libby Hill, made famous in 2015 Worlds. The start and the finish of the ride (including the Libby Hill climbs and the urban ride) is the same for all riders. The segment in between, either in the countryside or on the trails, varies in length and difficulty. Riders have the option of either a 26, 44, or 63 mile route through the scenic and flat countryside that surround Richmond. All cyclists return for their second climb up the hill for their chance to win the polka dot jersey, for the fastest climbers. New this year Cobble Free Conquer Cancer and E-Bike Challenge, thanks to Pedal Power RVA, a competition amongst e-bike riders, who must have a bike with no more than 500 watts. After your ride, celebrate at the after-party and awards ceremony. For more information, visit www.AmysArmyRVA.com
