The Bike Lane is excited to be a sponsor of the First Annual NoVa Epic on June 2, 2013. It is sure to be epic!
The NoVa Epic — presented by MORE, the Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts, Inc. and Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) — is an all-day supported mountain biking event that takes riders on a smorgasbord of the best trails single track trails Fairfax County offers, including our favorites Laurel Hill, Lake Accotink, Wakefield Park and Lake Fairfax.
The event begins on the County Connector Trail (CCT) at Laurel Hill and ends at Lake Fairfax with three separate but overlapping courses of 65-miles, 40-miles and 20-miles.
The 65-mile course includes an 8-mile loop in Laurel Hill, a 4-mile loop at Accotink, an 8-mile loop at Wakefield and 7-mile loop at Lake Fairfax.
The 40-mile loop is mellower and is primarily on the CCT.
IMPORTANT: The 20-mile course starts and finishes in Lake Fairfax!
The NoVa Epic celebrates National Trails Day Weekend and will raise funds for trail improvements in Fairfax County.
