From the Promoter:
What: Rock Creek Roubaix
What’s that: A hard cycling event over 50-miles or 25-miles of fast gravel and maybe some mud!
Where: Rock Creek, Ohio
Who: Any cyclist that thinks they have what it takes to tackle the gravel roads of Ashtubla county!
Why: Because we like it rough, that’s why!
Mass Start roll out at 10:00 AM for all 50-miles racers and 10:05 AM for 25-mile Rock riders.
50ish miles of dirt, mud, gravel and paved roads. Although the course is roughly 80% gravel roads, it’s laid out to be FAST, so don’t expect a whole lot of steep climbs or crazy descents. Do expect potholes, loose gravel and maybe a critter crossing here and there.
This is going to be a fast one! This course will take you over dirt and paved “State Roads” around Ashtbula County in Northern Ohio. Road conditions may include potholes, gravel, mud, black top, horse apples, and maybe a piece of road kill or two. Leave your expensive Flux-Capacitors and skinny tires at home and maybe bring the cross bike. It might be the best tool for the job, but bring whatever you think is best for you. The course will have fully stocked aid stations along the way. Sag support will be provided.
