April 8, 2018 Gravel Grape Crusher
New for 2018: 50K and 100K routes
Registration Information: BikeReg
Registration for 2018 is open. The ride has a limited amount of spots, so register fast here.
Ride through the grapes on Sunday April 8th, 2018. Join Velo Amis for the 2nd annual Gravel Grape Crusher - a challenging 50K or 100K ride. What is the best bicycle? It is up to you, but if you are not comfortable 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.
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. Three rest stops for the 100K - one for the 50K.
What you'll get:
Come for the ride, stay for the wine and beer! Registration comes with Paradocx wine and local Pennsylvania craft beer for participants 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 post ride food and stocked rest stops. T-shirts are included with the registration fee if you order by March 1st. Random raffle (and that glass of wine or beer) await you at the finish.
$10 for all riders 19 and under, active duty and retired military, national guard and police. No late fees.
$40 for 50K/100K if registered by March 1.
$55 for 50K/100K if registering after March 1.
$65 for 50K/100K for day-of registration - cash or check made out to Velo Amis.
Please help us to plan by registering early and save yourself some extra $.
Additional beer, wine, and food will be on sale for any friends or family that want to come hang out.
Please visit our Facebook event for up to date information.
Thanks to Paradocx Vineyard for hosting.
