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.
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.
