From the Promoter:
4th Annual RAS Gravel Adventure!
4000 ft of climbing
Famed JHR Climb with 21% grade
3 Vermont Pave Sections
- At about 12 miles in the Moses Pond climb goes on for about 3.5 miles to the twisting, turney descent on Jenny Coolidge road.
- Then we break out onto route 100 South through Historic Weston, just in time to get your breath back for the 4-mile rolling climb from Piper Hill to Dale Road and into the 2nd pave’ section of “Marsh Cross”.
- Little pond road takes you back into Weston and up the famed, tough as hell, 21% Johnson Hill Road.
Don’t burn all your matches as the last 8 miles includes a fast gravel descent down Buffum hill onto the Lil Michigan / Stone Place final class IV climbs.
There are a few short sections that some riders may want to dismount and walk or jog. You can go at your pace; race it with the lead group in under 3 hours or take it easy and still get back with plenty of time for lunch.
