30th Anniversary Reston Century

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Reston Bike Club's annual Reston Century, a ride throughout the Northern Virginia area with over 1,200 riders anticipated to be in attendance.  The ride is self-paced, and there are three routes to choose from; 34 miles, 65 miles, and the challenging 103 mile route.  The ride begins at 9 a.m. in Reston Town Center, and an after party begins when the riders return.  Proceeds for the event go to various non-profit organizations.

As part of the ride, participants will receive a free t-shirt, and every year, a prospectus is put out through ArtSpace Herndon to create a painting which will go on the back of each shirt.  This years theme is Leesburg and cycling, and I entered the above painting, "Out for a Ride," into the competition.  I was incredibly honored to find out that it won first prize, and will go on the back of the t-shirts!

I will also be selling prints at the start/finish line at Reston Town Center, so please swing by!  If you're interested in learning more about Reston Bike Club, click here!
