From the Promoter:

‘The Hero’ is an unsupported cycling event (from now on also defined as a public group bicycle ride or, incorrectly, competition or race) on Washington County’s fastest ‘hero’ gravel. It’s a FREE public gathering of friends and of fellow cyclists.

We ride to honor First Responders as Local Heroes.

Gravel so fast, you ride like a hero!

> Please car pool to the ride. That’ll help us with parking.
> See parking limitation details below in the section titled, LOCATION / PARKING / PATRONAGE.
> All are welcome. Please invite other friends and those you want to ‘shell like a pecan nut.’
> You’ll be asked to read, sign and submit a waiver, before the ride.

> Our ride will honor the First Responders in our community as local heroes.

> It’s not a race. If you want to race it, go right ahead. You will not be chip-timed. You will not win a prize nor money. You WILL ACHIEVE local legendary ‘street cred’ status for crossing the finish line in first position.
