4G (Great Gator Gravel Grinder)

March 29 @ 8:00 am 7:00 pm

 

It’s back: The 4G is the southernmost un-southern gravel ride and the uttermost unique ride of its kind in South Florida. The route covers the Gator’s share (or should we say Python’s share these days?) of remote areas you can find in the Miami-Dade area, featuring canals and access roads with very little pavement involved. We strongly recommend running nothing more narrow than a 40c tire as some of the paths along the route can be quite demanding.

 


 Save the dates and keep an eye on the event page for updates on this years 4G!! I am working hard with a great group of people and businesses to bring more fun, adventure and stuff to the table for 2020.

Strada Bellamy Sportif

April 7, 2019 @ 7:30 am 3:00 pm

 Once again you are invited to the toughest road ride in NorFla – the 7th Annual GCX Strada Bellamy Sportif. Covering 207km of paved and unpaved roadways, Strada Bellamy takes its inspiration from the Strade Bianche held each spring in Tuscany. Our route incorporates several sections of historic Old Bellamy Road, the first federal highway constructed in Florida during the 1820s. Participants will also ride many other back roads familiar to GCX regulars and we take pride in introducing them to you.

The 207km course includes 23 unpaved sectors totaling 125km. Primary feed zones (i.e. service station convenience stores) are at 65km and 156km. We’ll again offer a 99km option – the “Strada Bambino.” This event is not supported, not sagged, and not forgiving. The course will not be marked but a link to both course maps will be posted during the week prior to ride. No printed versions will be provided.

Gainesville Cycling Club members ride free; non-members are also free but must sign ride waiver.

Ride briefing at 7:20, rollout at 7:30am. Please park at south end of lot along SR 26.
