It breaks our hearts to say this, but unfortunately the 2021 Gravel Grape Crusher is canceled. One of the best parts of the ride is that it travels through multiple states, a bunch of parks, and has an awesome after party. However, this also means that we are under the varying restrictions of each state and are faced with major limits on the number of people that can be in any given place at any given time. We do not want a watered-down event. We want a kick-ass Gravel Grape Crusher. Above all, we want to have a safe environment.

We hope that 2022 will look different. If you donated your registration fees in 2020 and were expecting a discount for this year’s registration, or had won a free registration, we will honor it in 2022 if we can have the event.

Keep in our mind our GGC hosts at Paradocx Vineyard are open for business. Visit their website for safety considerations, hours of operations, and other information.

If you're looking for an opportunity to get on the bike, friends of Velo Amis, Lauri Webber and Gunnar Bergey are promoting Round 2 of MISSING:CX and have named us as their charity partner.
Where: Fairhill Park, Elkton, MD
When: February 28, 2021 9am
Registration is live on bikereg.com/missingcx

Thank you to all of essential workers. Please stay safe.

Bike history!Spin class anyone? Bicycle popularity boomed in the 1870s, coinciding with an interest in fitness as we know it today. Machines like this Stationary Training Bicycle (FI Catalog # 85-19) retailed for almost $200 when U.S. minimum wage was around 16cents per hour, so these trainers were most likely used in larger institutional gyms, like the YMCA. Other versions of this exercise bike recorded the distance the rider traveled against a timer. The early 1900s stationary bike shown here was in use in a university gym well into the 1950s. ...
