Spin the District Union City Gravel Gran Fondo
GET ON YOUR BIKE AND RIDE…OR RACE
Head out for year three and choose from a 60, 100 or 150-mile mixed Gravel Grind through scenic country roads. Stay after the ride for great food, drinks, and fun. (Last year’s 150-mile course had 23 sectors of more than 85-miles of primo gravel including 10,000’+ of elevation gain. The 100 had 18 sectors, 60-miles of gravel and 7,000’+ of elevation) Each course is well supported with full SAG stops.
REGISTRATION OPENS FEB. 28, 2020.
Limited to 250 Riders per event both men and women.
(Plus 100 additional spots awarded for either the 100 or 150 gravel ride for anyone placing top 5 in a gravel race last year – see registration notes for details)
STAY FOR THE WEEKEND
What’s so special about this Grand Fondo versus all the others, though?
We. Are. So. Glad. You. Asked.
First, this isn’t just an amazing day of rides (although it is an amazing day of rides if we haven’t tortured that point enough yet). It’s a whole weekend of legitimately awesome activities:
– Arrive sometime Friday, settle in, and join us for an evening party at the Velodrome with food, beer, a DJ, and people who love cycling.
– Take it easy the next morning, then hop on your bike to join our Beltline Brew Tour Saturday, where visits to two nearby bars and six Atlanta breweries will take us into the city and back again. More on that soon.
– And then get a good night’s rest, because Sunday is Sunday. You’ll ride until your metaphorical wheels fall off (we have SAG support for your literal wheels—it’s all covered in the Ride Bible), and upon returning, you’ll find the post-ride party in full swing: food, beer, music, massages, and more. You’ll be treated like royalty as you come down from your post-ride high. Filthy, sweaty royalty.
WIN A BIG A$$ Belt.
More challenging segments are in store for 2020 where we will offer a Time Segment Challenge for the participants of the road Rayon100 event and the gravel Denim60, Husky100 & Toughskin150 versions. The winner of each Time Segment Challenge will be rewarded a custom, giant badass belt. (Think All-star wrestling big) To win the Time Segment Challenge, you must have the fastest overall accumulative time of the segments provided for each event.
