    The Lehigh Valley ROCK-N-ROAD mixed terrain ride takes place on lightly traveled rural roads and through PA State Game Lands. There are 50km and 100km options with lots of gravel and unpaved sections. For course descriptions and maps visit the event website.

    Start at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center (T-Town) and ride with Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix winner Andrea Tafi. Ride beautiful roads and finish on the Velodrome…just like Andrea at Paris Roubaix.  Also riding will be Masters World and National CX Champion Laura Van Gilder and Olympian Bobby Lea.

    Registration includes a goody bag, rest stops, great route markings, SAG support and after-party with snacks & beer from FUNK Brewing. You’ll have access to the Velodrome’s locker rooms before and after your ride.  Free parking at VPCC.

    Take advantage of early bird registration - entry fee increase in August.

    Custom awards for the top male & female finishers in each distance.

    While a gravel bike will work well, just about any road bike will be good too.  The ride includes paved roads and plenty of rough and mixed surfaces.  Tires with puncture protection are recommended.  Frames with extra clearance are a good idea too.

    Sign up for the exclusive VIP package.
