Much like the sacred battles on Olympus, The Theoi is designed to challenge participants both physically and mentally. There are three parts to this event: an intermediate-distance triathlon, a near-vertical gravel time trial (bike) up the mountain, and a demanding off-road/gravel bike race.
unPAved of the Susquehanna River Valley 2021 Announced – by Guitar Ted The shindig in Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna River Valley area is going to happen again…
The Pennsylvania countryside in Fall is supposed to be a beautiful thing, or so I have been told. I would know, but an unfortunate family health issue prevented me from attending the second unPAved of the Susquehanna River Valley event. Oh well, that’s how it goes sometimes. The good news is that the team there in Pennsylvania has decided to do it all again this coming Fall.
Just off the Front Range of Colorado, this event in Gering, Nebraska focuses on the unsung gravel terrain of the Old West. The Robidoux Quick & Dirty will be held on June 20, 2020. The event features 25, 65, and 100 mile routes.
Anyway, here is an event which has a very grass roots feel and all it takes to get in is for you to send Dan a post card with the required information and then when you come, he asks you to donate $40.00 in the pickle jar5 which helps support local trails. Otherwise, as Dangerous Dan says, “You do you”.
