2019 SweetWater Whiskey Rebellion Gravel 200K
May 19, 2019 All day
Challenge yourself on the SweetWater Whiskey Rebellion Gravel Ride, an adventurous tour through historic PA landscapes of Washington County. Perfect for Adventurers who ride OFF-ROAD including Mountain Bikers, Gravel Junkies, Cyclecross Racers and Adventurers Cyclists. You’ll ride many of the original winding roads and covered bridges traveled by the farmers who started the 1790s Whiskey Rebellion in response to President Washington’s ill-fated first national taxation plan. Whiskey Rebellion roads vary from pea gravel to new loose baseball-sized can have some mud and grass in the middle too. There is also a stream crossing on the longest route. The terrain is endless steep rolling hills that western Pennsylvania is famous for with over 7,000 ft. of climbing in the 120K option. For 2019, you’ll be able to test your mettle on the NEW 200K option, the Whiskey Barrel 200K. With nearly 12,000 ft. of elevation, it’s certainly among the most challenging gravel rides east of the Mississippi.
