For 14 years, Arlington has hosted top-level professional cyclists competing in on a hard and fast course through the heart of Clarendon. Check out the action this Saturday.
As it has for the past 14 years, Arlington's Clarendon neighborhood will host another edition of Air Force Cycling Classic Clarendon Cup. This professional cycling race takes place on a tight and winding course threaded through Clarendon along Wilson, Washington and Clarendon boulevards.
