Hillclimb World Championships - Race Up Gibraltar Rd! Santa Barbara, CA - OCT 26, 2018

Gravel Race Up Spruce Knob

Gravel Race Up Spruce Knob

July 07 2018
Circleville, West Virginia, USA

This is an adventure-cycling race on and around the highest peak in the mountain state, Spruce Knob! This race will take riders through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the East. The road conditions on course will vary from buttery pavement, to smooth dirt, to chunky gravel, to poorly maintained, pot-hole infested backroads.  There may even be a section of honest-to-goodness singletrack.  This race is a true challenge for the adventurous spirit within every cyclist and one you don't want to miss.


SKMC is a remote location. The nearest gas station is 12 miles away.  The nearest grocery store is an hour away. Please bring everything you think you may need and maybe some things you might not...just in case.  If you plan on cooking your own meals, bring plenty of food, camp stove and fuel.
