Thanks to all for a successful first Gravel Grape Crusher! Velo Amis was able to make a $500 contribution to the Police Unity Tour. Please keep in mind that Paradocx lands are closed for cycling.
Thanks again to our all sponsors!

This ain't no April Fools joke!
Ride through the grapes on April 1st. Join Velo Amis for the inaugural Gravel Grape Crusher - a challenging 25...ish or 50...ish mile ride. What is the best bicycle? It is up to you but if you are not compfortable on a gravel bike we'd suggest a mountain bike....We will begin at Paradocx Vineyard in Landenberg, PA and will travel through White Clay Preserve, White Clay Creek, Redd Park, Newark Reservoir, Fair Hill Park and a few others. This is not a race. The 25 mile route does not go through all of the parks.
Both routes are a mix of gravel, double track, single track, field and road, with features in Fair Hill, White Clay, Redd Park and White Clay Preserve. Two rest stops for the 50 mile - one for the 25 mile.
What you'll get:
Come for the ride, stay for the wine and beer! We'll have Paradocx wine and local Pennsylvania craft beer for the old folk (that means only 21 and up!). Soda/water ONLY for those cyclists under 21 years of age - but also only $10 for anyone 19 and under to ride. Ride registration also comes with a food ticket for a local vendor. T-shirts are included with the registration fee if you order by March 15th. Giveaways (and that glass of wine or beer) await you at the finish.
Additional beer, wine, and food will be on sale for any friends or family that want to come hang out.
