2014 USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships
Friday, May 02, 2014 — Sunday, May 04, 2014
Place: Downtown Richmond, Free

This May the City of Richmond is host to the 2014 USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships. More than 400 collegiate racers from 100 schools and thousands of fans across the nation will be in attendance, bringing national and international attention to the area.

Be aware that the race route goes through downtown Richmond, which will result in numerous road closures affecting accessibility to the Library of Virginia and its underground parking deck. Broad, 8th, and 9th streets in our immediate area will be closed to vehicular traffic most of the day on Friday, May 2. To park in our underground deck that day, approach the building from Marshall Street or 8th Street. You'll be allowed access past the street barricades to the Library's parking deck and will need to enter from 8th Street and exit using the 9th Street ramp.
