From the Promoter:

4th Annual RAS Gravel Adventure!

41.6 Miles

4000 ft of climbing

Famed JHR Climb with 21% grade

88% Gravel

3 Vermont Pave Sections

Highlights include

  • 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.
