2225 Craig's Side Rd
Carp, ON K0A 1L0
From the Promoter:
Welcome to the kickoff event of the EASTERN CANADA GRAVEL CUP p/b euro-sports, Ottawa’s endurance sports store. This first event of the series will be a great way to start the spring gravel riding season. The competitive course features 77 km’s +417m of gravel and paved roads leading riders around West Carleton County while the sport course features 50km’s +225m of gravel bliss. The terrain is modest and a perfect way for the more experienced gravel riders to let their legs fly and the lesser experienced gravel riders to tackle mixed surface riding with their mates.
Beginning at KIN Vineyards in Carp, this route follows much of the competitive course until Kinburn. After traversing a network of gravel roads behind Kinburn, the riders will head back across the Carp River on John Shaw. Once in Marathon, Old Coach Rd will take the riders back to the finish at KIN Vineyards with spectacular views of the Carp Ridge. This is the least technical and hilly of all the short courses and a great introduction to gravel riding.
