Welcome to the website of the Jamestown Classic, the largest bicycle Road Race in Rhode Island. On Columbus Day, Monday, October 13, 2014 we will celebrate the 39th edition of this fun event. The race is the main fundraising event for the Jamestown Rotary Club. Proceeds from the race are used to support local, national and international causes. In recent years, these funds have been used to purchase wheelchairs for underprivileged individuals in Nicaragua, create a women's literacy project in Ghana, purchase new music chairs for the Jamestown Middle School, support the local Boy Scouts, contribute toward research for a cure to ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and assist in the maintenance of a clean water project in Cambodia, among other noteworthy items. Quite simply, these projects would not be possible without your support and participation in the Jamestown Classic Bicycle Race.
Racing begins at 8:30 AM in sequenced starts. Some of the best racers from the Northeast and beyond compete in the UASA Cycling sanctioned series with the following categories: Men's Masters divisions, Men's Cat 4; Men's Cat 5 divisions; and a Women's Open Catagory; and four Junior categorie. Novice riders may once again race in the Cat 5 events by purchasing a "one day" license.

If you hold a USA Cycling License and want to race with the best including present and former US champions, this is your chance. If you want to move into USA Cycling competition, but have never tried, secure a one-day license (available on-site) and go for it. If you just want to race or ride for fun, enter the Fun Ride (no license required).

Jamestown offers one of the most scenic race venues with a course that circuits the island with stretches of bucolic forest and farmland to vistas of the East and West Passages of Narragansett Bay, the Newport Bridge and historic lighthouse at Beavertail. What a way to celebrate Columbus Day - Discover Jamestown, lift your spirits as you help the Jamestown Rotary Club support worthy causes in this community and the world.
