This year’s Reston Town Center Grand Prix will host more than 500 cyclists from the Mid-Atlantic region to compete at all levels, from beginner to seasoned racer. The venue is perfectly suited for viewing and will host thousands of spectators. The schedule includes children’s races for younger cyclists aged 4 years to 9 years, beginning at 12 p.m. Children with any kind of bike are welcome to participate in the race as long as they are wearing a bike helmet. The Bike Lane, another sponsor of the event, will be providing complimentary helmet checks on site.
Proceeds from the event will support The Raisin Hope Foundation, an organization that encourages brain injury research and promotes public awareness and understanding of people with a disability as a result of a brain injury. This charity is important to the Evolution Cycling team, as one of its teammates is recovering from a brain trauma injury he suffered during a bicycle race.
“The team at Prosperity Mortgage/RGS Title and Long & Foster Insurance believes whole-heartedly in the promotion of safety and cycling. Cycling encourages a healthy lifestyle and interaction among community members,” said Teresa Schudel, regional vice president for RGS Title. “RGS Title is pleased to support cycling as a sport and to help raise money for a great cause, the Raisin Hope Foundation, while at the same time proactively educating young riders about brain injury, safety and prevention.”
“The Reston Town Center is the perfect venue for a spectator-friendly bike race, which allows us to celebrate cycling and support The Raisin Hope Foundation,”
