Kick off your 2023 riding season with our Ninth Annual 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!  For 2023, there are only two route options- 27 & 47 miles.

About The Ride

It is a scenic tour through the country road of Portage and Geauga County.
Cyclocross, Mountain, Single-Speed, Fixed gear, Fatbikes and tandem bicycles are welcome.  Road bikes will not be well-suited for this course.
The course is will be marked prior to the event and maps will be available. Course marshals will NOT be at every corner or intersection, rules of the road apply!
The course will NOT be closed to traffic and does not have a rolling escort. Cycling rules of the road apply, i.e. stop at all stop signs, yield to cars, no more than 2 riders abreast and do not cross yellow center line. Please do not litter.
A sag vehicle will be on course to help out riders.
All participants will get a free t-shirt, pint glass (t-shirts and glasses limited to first 300 registered), free drink, free chili bowl and timing.

We will have a mass start at 10 AM sharp of the 25 & 47 milers.  Chip timing for finishers will again be available but this event is ran as a fondo, not a race.
