Ride the Ridges

September 13 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Cabot, Vermont’s Ride the Ridges is a “something for everyone” type of event. This event, where 100% of the proceeds go towards Cabot Connects, Cabot’s Mentoring Program, offers 4 different distance rides, each with multiple aid stations, plenty of gravel, hills, and scenic overlooks.  We offer a 10k, 30k, 60k, and 100k ride, with staggered start times. The routes are well-marked and maps are provided. Almost all of the riding is on gravel roads and trails, and the scenery is breathtaking.  For those looking for a challenging ride, the 100k offers plenty of challenge, complete with over 7500 ft of elevation gain.

The aid stations are stocked with plenty of energy-rich food, including granola bars, trail mix, maple-syrup shots, freshly picked local apples, freshly made maple donuts, pickles, bananas, plenty of water and gatorade, and even specialty cheeses and crackers – and more!  Following the ride, we deck out the Cabot Green with a mobile wood-fired pizza oven for handmade pizzas with all-natural ingredients, more specialty cheeses, and lots, lots more!!  This is a terrific event put on by terrific people and supporting a terrific cause.  If you have any questions, please contact us through our FaceBook page – https://www.facebook.com/cabotconnects – or by email at info@ridetheridges.net

THE WATERMOO

August 8 @ 7:11 am 2:00 pm

THE WATERMOO is an 88-mile gravel road race on mostly gravel, some tarmac and a road that is no longer a road with a river crossing in the farmlands of southeastern Michigan. To successfully complete THE WATERMOO requires one to work hard, patiently and methodically like the water oxen that once roamed the land of Waterloo, Michigan.

Gold Rush Gravel Grinder

June 13 All day

Gold Rush Gravel Grinder

the Lakota worship the Black Hills as the Paha Sapa “The Heart of Everything That Is”

 

Barn Mountain 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you haven’t done this race yet, I’d encourage you to give it a go. The course is a very scenic route through the hills, with flowing creeks and flowers galore! It’s a very challenging ride with a lot of steady climbing on mostly gravel roads. It’s a remote race, so you’ll be out there on your own for hours at a time. It’s semi-supported, so you’ll have a few places where you can get water, or maybe some raw potatoes, but you’ll also need to carry much of your own gear. It’s a race if you’re into racing, or just a ride if you want to get out and challenge yourself for the day. It ends with a party and plenty of food, as many Crow Peak brews as you can drink, great stories, new and old friends, and a few prizes if you’re lucky. It’s a gravel grinder, that we put on for you, to give you a glimpse of some of the beautiful and unique riding in the area! We hope you enjoy it, and we hope to have you all back year after year!

Find it and Grind it!
