The Harris-Roubaix is another great, fun cycling event brought to you by Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. It takes place every Spring around the same day as the Paris-Roubaix. The group leaves from the center of Harrisonburg at noon for a casual ride to a family farm about 7 miles to the north. From the farm, there will be a 10-15 mile loop marked for your enjoyment.
What to bring: Your bike, items to change a flat, water, a smile, and some food to share at the farm–if you bring a dish to share, pot-luck style, to Court Square before the ride, we will bring it out to the farm.
The roads of Roubaix A majority of the Roubaix loop will be smooth gravel roads to the Northwest of Harrisonburg, located around the Singers Glen area. This area backs up on the Great North Mountain, so there may be several steep hill climbs.
