The O.G. Gravel Fondo

November 26 2017
Cochranville, Pennsylvania, USA

A 62 mile Gravel Ride in Chester County. 

This is a ride, NOT a race. This ride is 100% unsupported. This is a free will group ride, not a commercial event, there is no fee.
Free.  Gratis.  No Charge. It is an open road event and it is the cyclists’ responsibility to follow the highway/roadway PA code.

RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Before the ride, you will sign a waiver saying you won’t be a jerk or get hurt.You are responsible for yourself before, during, and after the ride. Be prepared with food, water, gps, bicycle computer, compass, carrier pigeon, etc. You may not need all of these things, but remember, no one is going to save you if you get lost. 

Ride with a friend, and most importantly, have fun!

Cross-type bikes are recommended with a minimum of a 28c tire, but a 32/35c is better with some kind of grip/knobs.  Slicks and Road Shoes are not recommended, as there are some light trails on the course, so something with some tread is best, and you may have to walk a little. Mountain bikes are fine, just know there is pavement too, so you gotta pedal that heavy beast.  Maybe slap some Cross tires on that 29er?

 
Routes: 62 miles
Difficulty of Greatest Route: C - Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs
Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time (EST)
