Details
The Vigo County Parks and Recreation Department presents a Springtime Gravel race with fabulous views of well-known attractions like Garbage Mountain (the local dump) both out and inbound, ride by many pork and turkey farms, and over Numerous train tracks in this lil’more than a Metric long course. There will also be a medium-length course that cuts off the final loop at the Sag stop.

This will be an all-weather event (barring serious weather) so dress accordingly.

The course is a mix of chunky gravel, dirt roads, a bit of pavement, a few hills, and probably lots of mud.

There will be timing/placing for the top 3 in each class, course marshals, and signs to mark the route. GPS devices ARE advised and course route files are available on RideWithGPS. You will find yourself in the middle of Nowhere, Indiana. Often. This is NOT road bike friendly.

Races will be a mass start at Griffin Bike Park and finish at Griffin Bike Park.

$40 Pre-registration fee until April 9th. $50 April 10th and after. This event is a fundraiser for Griffin Bike Park.
