From the Promoter:

Welcome to our 1st annual fall gravel road event.  For the 2017 addition, our aventurous, off-the-beaten-path, dirt road rides will start and finish from High Meadows Farm, in Putney, VT and wind through Putney, Dummerston, Brookline and Westminster. They are moderate to challenging loops for intermediate and advanced riders. Each ride includes several bail out points to shorten the ride, if need be. As the venue host, High Meadows Farm will be providing their barn equipped with seating and tables for staying out of the weather. There’s drinking water and a porta-potty on-site.

We are still working out details for our lunch, so stop back later as we get closer to the date.

These rides are rural and unsupported, so riders should be prepared to carry any tools necessary to make repairs, and all their food and drink for the ride. There will be one chaperone per ride who knows the way. Cell service is very spotty and unreliable. We recommend a cyclocross bike, mountain bike, or gravel road worthy bike with at least 700x32c tires.  The 4-Gap route includes a climb and descent on the Pinnacle hiking trails, and a low gear of at least 32T is suggested.  The routes  will be marked and have been mapped using RideWithGPS. We will have printed maps.
