Brandywine Valley Roubaix - April 29th, 2018, 9:00am

Chester County Velo and WCCX are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Brandywine Valley Roubaix (BVR).  This Gravel Grinder / Gran Fondo / Group Ride will take riders through the scenic country-side and rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley, some of the most unspoiled and historic countryside of the Mid-Atlantic.  The full ride is 60 miles (and 4,000 feet of climbing) with over 40% consisting of gravel / mixed surface roads including the famed 1 mile long Hill Top Road climb (10% grade in some sections) and several newly added gravel sections.  The course is suited for both road bikes (25 mm tires best) and cyclocross bikes, and will have a road bypass option for avoiding several of the more technical sections.  See video course preview courtesy of
