Raid Lamoille

July 8

$50 - $75

It’s pronounced “la-moyle” and is one of Vermont’s northern counties and it happens to hold some of the most sublime gravel riding in the Northeast. The 2014 inaugural ride was a smash hit – fantastic weather, a hearty group of riders and an incredible after party. And it will be even better in 2017…….this is one ride you won’t want to miss.

The route is approximately 100K (with a 50K option) , mostly gravel roads through the stunning Vermont countryside and will include nearly 6,000 feet of climbing. Yeah, it’s hard. But the decision is easy, you gotta put some gravel in your travel!

Raid – Our definition? A raid is a challenging route that includes a significant amount of packed-gravel riding and some major climbing segments. Some would call it a dirt road randonee, others a gravel grinder, we just call it a Raid. This is not a race. A properly prepared rider and bike of most any type can do this. Our guarantee – you will finish tired but feeling accomplished. It’s probably not for everybody, but you’re not everybody, right?

“I did Lamoille this year.  That was the most enjoyable ride I have ever done. That includes training rides here in Texas,  races here, and the Vermont 50.  The Raid Lamoille was the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike. ”    – Trevor

 

Epic Route – Epic Ride!:

Here’s what you need to know: 100K of riding, lots of packed gravel roads featuring a devilish assortment of hills and nearly 6000′ of climbing!

“Scrubbed” cue sheets will be handed out at the event – as you know, online route-mapping software sometimes throws in a Right when it should say Left, hence the scrub! The route may have arrows at critical intersections too.

A course link (with GPX link) will be provided prior to the ride. The official guide is the cue sheet you receive at the ride.
