The Armed Forces Retirement Home offers an unlikely setting for an annual bike race. The DCCX Cyclocross Race attracts hundreds of cyclists came from all over the East Coast to Washington, DC. The race was almost cancelled due to the October government shutdown. The sprawling course included dirt hills, steps, and other obstacles. Spectators got to sit in the middle of the action, with surprise appearances by drummers and later a mariachi band. Here are photos from the event:
