Cycling Classic events lead to street closures in Arlington

Several streets in Arlington, Virginia, will be temporarily closed on Sunday due to a cycling event.

The 22nd running of the Armed Forces Cycling Classic’s Clarendon Cup will affect a number of city streets surrounding the Clarendon Metro station.

The 0.6-mile course will shut down portions of Wilson, Washington and Clarendon boulevards, as well as North Highland and North Fillmore streets.

The first riders will take to the streets at 8 a.m. with various amateur races, followed by the women’s Pro/Am race at 10 a.m.

The men’s pro race, which consists of 100 laps, will start at approximately 12:05 p.m.
