Valley Proud Gravel Grind 2019
Race Details:

The Valley Proud tour is a cycling event aimed at show casing the dynamic beauty of the Annapolis Valley. We believe in our community and want to see it thrive. That is why we give back the proceeds of this ride to our Valley.

This year we are very proud to be supporting Chrysalis house by donating 100% of all profit raised on this ride. We will be excepting a free will offering for this.

This event will be more of a group ride than a the past events. As a result of not having a set entry fee we are asking that everyone who will be attending to check the attending box so we can get a good idea of what to expect for numbers, you know, just in case Burritos or Burgers might be involved. The longest of the two rides won’t be for everyone as their will be lots of climbing.

The best bike will be a gravel, cycle cross with at least a 35c tire or 29er.

If you show up thinking your going to do it on your standard road bike with 25 or 28, sorry but you will run out of tubes so please bring the appropriate bike.
We will be supplying a water and snack stop, and a second water stop for the longest ride.
We will also have a street and trail motorcycle sweeping but because of some of the locations we are going to run it as a group ride.
We will regroup after the climbs so the stronger riders will be able to sprint up the climbs.

I would like to be in the race this year. With the virus are you still holding the race and if so what is the date?
