Come out to the Hilly Billy Roubaix. It is a 74-mile bicycle race through the back roads and hills of West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
The inaugural Charleston Team Cycling Classic will be truly one of a kind. Teams of three cyclists will compete over two days in three disciplines to decide an overall winner. Each stage will award points to cyclists for their finish placing in that event (the Team Time Trial will award 1, 2, and 3 points to the first place team so it isn't weighted more than other events). A podium sweep would earn 1, 2, and 3 points for a team total of 6 points for that event. At the end of three events, the lowest cumulative team points total wins. In the event of a tie, the Team Time Trial results will be the first tie-breaker (there will be more, but it's highly unlikely we'll need them). This race won't be over until the last finish line is crossed! It's your chance to stand on the podium of a stage race with your two best teammates. Visit the website to register.
Registration will begin at 7 am. The tour will begin at 8 a.m. with the start of the 100 km riders. The mass start will be at 8:45 a.m. for those riding 30 miles, escorted by the Wheeling Police Department, with road guards posted at critical intersections. The 10-mile ride is also an escorted ride on the trail and will begin shortly after the mass start. The 100 km (62 miles) ride will leave the trail near the Ohio/Brooke County line for a hilly loop through Bethany and West Liberty with a stop at Bethany College. It is a challenging ride with great SAG support. Lunch will be served between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Heritage Port and there will be entertainment from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., so returning riders can sit under the shade trees or tents and relax. Snack/water stops will keep riders hydrated: 3 on the 100 km ride and 2 on the 30-mile ride. Same-day registrations are welcome but it helps us if you register early. Every participant is required to wear a helmet. Entrants under 18 must be accompanied by a registered adult. We ride rain or shine! For further information call Quick Service Bicycle Shop at 740-635-3700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The 2017 Heritage Trail Tour is made possible by our generous sponsors and by thousands of volunteer hours donated by members of the Ohio Valley Trail Partners and residents of the Ohio Valley. Money raised by this event supports expansion and care for the Wheeling Heritage Trail. We hope you enjoy it!

The HBR is a 72"ish" mile dirty road bicycle race in the hollers and on the hills around Morgantown, West Virginia and South Western Pennsylvania, or as we like to call it, West Pennsylginia! The course consists of dirt roads, paved roads, gravel roads and even a few roads that have been abandoned by the State of West Virginia. Don't be mistaken, many have, it is 70+ miles of backroads, dozens of steep climbs, technical gravel descents, one small creek crossing and in case you missed it, a few abandoned roads! The challenging terrain, mud, dirt and the distance of the Hilly Billy Roubaix is not for everyone, but the challenge sure is rewarding! Registration limited to first 500 riders. Mass Start at 10:00 am! There will be CUT OFF TIMES at Aid Station #1, #2, #3 and #4. This must be done, as we cannot ask our volunteers to spend 9+ hours on the side of the road. Please be aware and understanding of this fact. ~ Aid Station #1 cut off time – 1 pm. ~ Aid Station #2 cut off time – 2 pm. ~ Aid Station #3 cut off time – 3:30 pm. ~ Aid Station #4 cut off time – 5:30 pm.
