WE HAVE THE GRAVEL!

Welcome everyone to the 3rd annual Gravel Grape Crusher! Ride through the grapes on Saturday, April 13th. You have the choice of either 50K or 100K. You probably do not want a road bike for this event. The ride is a combination of road, gravel, single track, double track and fields. Includes one free drink (wine, beer or non-alcoholic beverage) post ride food, and a GGC swag item (TBD). Must register by 3/1/19 to get early bird pricing. Entry fee increases to $65 on 3/1/19. Register early so we can plan, but also so you can save $$. If available, day of registration is $75 and opens at 7:00am for the 100K riders and 8:00am for the 50K riders. 

PLEASE check in and leave for the distance that you have registered for.

The route schedules are as follows:
100K Registration opens at 7:00am. Riders depart at 8:00am
50K Registration opens at 8:00am. Riders depart at 9:00am 

There is a reason that we have different registration and start times. Road marshals, aid stations, etc are set up based on our route schedules. PLEASE follow this simple rule.


Early packet pickup will be available - stay tuned for more information.

What you'll get:

We begin and end at Paradocx Vineyard.  There is a lot of climbing. Maps and more info will be posted here, on Veloamis.org and on our Facebook page. You will receive cue sheets and GPS maps to download to devices AFTER registration closes. The course will be marked, but you are ultimately responsible, so please download maps and cue sheets.  

Come for the ride, stay for the wine and beer! We'll have Paradocx wine and local Pennsylvania craft beer for all cyclists 21 years of age & older. Sorry kids, only soda and water for anyone under the age of 21. Only $10 for anyone 19 & under, first responders, and military to ride. There are stocked rest stops and post ride food. 

***Food tickets will be available for $10 if you bring along family members/friends.

Additional beer and wine will be on sale. DO NOT bring any outside alcohol to this event!

Disclaimer: We are going through at least 9 parks (state, county and local) in three different states. We reserve the right to make alterations to the courses if there is a chance of damage to the trail systems. This may result in additional or fewer kilometers and changes in elevation gain/loss. You are responsible for yourself. We are riding on roads with cars and you must obey all traffic laws. Please ride single file. The roads are not closed to vehicles. While in parks, please be courteous to other users. The parks are open to horses, pedestrians and other cyclists. This is not a race, we want to be invited back, not only to Paradocx, but to all the parks as well. Additionally, please hold on to your trash until you reach an aid station or dispose of it in a proper receptacle. In case you missed it... THIS IS NOT A RACE! ENJOY THE RIDE WITH FRIENDS AND NEW FRIENDS. 

NO E-BIKES!!
