Hero Graval Classic 2018
September 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
‘The Hero’ is an unsupported cycling event (from now on also defined as a public group bicycle ride or, incorrectly, competition or race) on Washington County’s fastest ‘hero’ gravel. It’s a FREE pubic gathering of friends and of fellow cyclists.
We ride to honor First Responders as Local Heroes.
Gravel so fast, you ride like a hero!

WHY WE RIDE
> Our ride will honor the First Responders in our community as local heroes.
> It’s not a race. If you want to race it, go right ahead. You will not be chip-timed. You will not win a prize nor money. You WILL ACHIEVE local legendary ‘street cred’ status for crossing the finish line in first position.
> Your gravel riding performance, and most important … resulting bragging rights will be earned by you alone. So, ride well, safely and pick the ‘smoothest line.’
> 57 and 36 mile routes are available. All of the routes contain gravel and pavement sectors.
Please print your own cue sheets; RideWithGPS files below provide printable cue sheets.
