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 Bikepacking.tv: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ge7bhoaDHu8.

As with all previous WCCX events a portion of the proceeds will benefit two local charities.  Quest Therapeutics (www.questtherapeutic.com) is an equestrian facility utilizing horse riding to provide therapy for children with physical and developmental challenges.  Our second charity is the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Mountain Bike Association (www.pamtb.org), a grass-roots organization developing high and middle school mountain bike programs in our immediate area.

The BVR will be supported by Trek although riders are responsible for on-the-course mechanicals.  A feed stop and facilities will be located at approximately mile marker 35, at the historic Whip Tavern (thewhiptavern.com).  

We will provide several routing options for the ride with marketings / signage along the course, including:

Hope you can make it out and please spread the word.
