Welcome to our inaugural gravel tour. This is an opportunity to experience some winding, hilly,
unpaved rural roads and trails in a quiet, traffic free setting. Local riders have set a challenging route to
ensure you have an adventure to remember. The event will be run as a Gran Fondo ride with a noncompetitive aspect. Our goal is to share our roads with those who like to roam.

Course information:

Rolling terrain on unpaved and unmaintained rural roads.
Several sections of rugged, muddy trails. You will get dirty.
Approx. 80 kilometers, (with option to shorten to 50 kilometers).
Checkpoint #1 located at approx. 23k distance.
Checkpoint #2 located at approx. 50k distance.
Participants are expected to be self-supported. Please carry sufficient fluids and nutrition to complete
the route. We also recommend you carry tools and spares in the event of a mechanical problem.
