Strade Bianche Rouleur Challenge 125K
August 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:44 pm$10.00
This is the second ride in our gravel Rouleur series and we’ll start early so those of you who come from afar will be able to finish the ride before driving home.
Completion of this ride will count toward the new RUSA Rouleur award!
The ride will start and finish in Stockton, Il. This route is considerably tougher than our 100K route and includes more gravel sections with just about half of the route on gravel. The route includes several steep climbs and descents on gravel so wider tires (32mm or greater) and good brakes are a must.
This is a RUSA sanctioned event and riders who complete the route will get credit for 60K of gravel which will count toward other gravel related RUSA awards under development.
The route is 81 miles, 37 of which is gravel, 5,820 feet of climbing. Ridewithgps here.
This is going to be a fun weekend of riding and you won’t want to miss it!
Many thanks to our “Executive Vice President for Unpaved Excursions” – Dawn Piech for her work on the route!
