2017 Road Apple Roubaix

Road Apple Roubaix

March 04 2017
Middlefield, Ohio, USA
 

Kick off your riding season with the second Road Apple Roubaix.  This gravel road ride will test riders with plenty of gravel, some pavement, potential mud and perhaps even some snow and ice!   This is an opportunity to tour some of the less travelled roads out in Amish country…JUST BEWARE OF THE ROAD APPLES!  There are two route options- tentatively 20 & 45 miles.  Exact routes and distances will be forthcoming.

Cyclists of all kinds and performance levels (no license required) that want to start their season with a real challenge and experience the scenery of Amish country while avoiding the steaming road apples. Geauga County is the closest Amish Community to Cleveland, Ohio. With an Amish population of just over 14,000 it is the 4th largest Amish settlement in the world.
