Difficulty: Gently rolling terrain with one or two short hills

The Franklin County Cyclists are excited to once again host Michaux GRVL for 2023, and are offering a new 62 mile route!

We are once again partnering  with 2 great local groups for this event; Friends of Michaux State Forest and Bulldog Bike Park. Proceeds from this year's event will be distributed to both groups, and each will be active participants in the event by running aid stations  and providing volunteers along the route.

MICHAUX GRVL 2023 is a ride to be taken at your own pace and no prizes will be awarded. However, we will be offering timing on each route for those interested in their personal statistics, and results will be posted on our website following the event. The Fast may go Fast & the Slow may go Slow.

We recommend the use of gravel bikes with tires of at least 35mm for any route since some stretches of road can be chunky and there is a risk of punctures with smaller tires on the downhill sections of the courses.

There will be no day-of registrations, and all participants must complete their registrations on BikeReg prior to the close of the event registration. We are coordinating a pre-race packet pick up on Friday evening September 15, 2023 with the GearHouse Brewing Co. Day-of packet pick up will be available prior to the start. Start times will range from 7:30am -10:30 am. 

62 Mile Start time:  7:30 am

50 Mile Start Time: 8:30am

25 Mile Start Time : 9:30am

15 Mile Start Time: 10:00am

Route markings for each course will be designated using signs and colored arrows ( specific to each route).  Route marking colors will be displayed at the route start.

GPS files for each route along with cue sheets will be available through an online link.

If you need to cordinate an earlier start time, please contact us.

This is a Rain or Shine event and no refunds will be given, so please plan accordingly when signing up.

Participants will receive with their paid entry a meal voucher good towards a post ride lunch at a Food Truck  that will be on hand that day.

Participants will also receive a souvenir glass courtesy of Quick Release Bicycles.

FCC members who register for the event are encouraged to  wear their FCC kit!

Tee shirts with the Michaux GRVL 2023 event logo will be available at the event start/finish in limited numbers of various sizes. They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis ( 1 per customer) fro $20;  please bring cash.
