From the Promoter:
Black Fork LLC, Noble County and AEP ReCreation Lands are proud to announce a gravel road race UNLIKE ANY OTHER IN THE UNITED STATES, The NITE RIDER GRAVEL GRINDER! For the very first time, gravel cyclists will have an opportunity to race on a closed road loop, 100% gravel (or dirt), at NITE!
The route will consist of three lightning-fast laps ranging from approximately 7 to 11 miles in length. The first lap will be entirely on rolling, curvy gravel roads and the second and third laps add in some gnarly double track to spice things up.
If you’ve explored AEP ReCreation Lands, you know that this area is like no other in Ohio. There are over 60,000 acres of beautifully reclaimed strip-mined land with miles of sweet gravel, badass coal mining roads, and even some grass double track that any mountain biker or CX racer can appreciate. The Nite Rider Gravel Grinder, has blended these unique elements to create one awesome cycling route! Riding gravel at night is one of the most unique and fun adventures you can have on a bike, so don’t miss out!
