We developed this race for several reasons. First we are athletes and want to promote a healthy lifestyle, second as cyclists we want to increase cycling awareness to the area, and third we want to give back to our community. We desire to grow this gravel race, but what we didn’t realize was how this would become known as a very challenging race. We discussed increasing it to a Century but the riders who have completed it told us that it is already tough enough without adding the additional mileage. So for NOW we will keep the two distances at 25 and 65, but don’t let the 25 miler fool you, the majority of the elevation is in that first 25 so there really is no break, the 65 miler allows riders to climb out of the valley and ride a beautiful scenic route with many water crossings and an awesome Aid Station – Thanks to our local RWB friends.
