Gravel Ride Intermediate

Meet at 10:00 am in Pecatonica American Legion Post 197 parking lot, 403 Main St., Pecatonica, IL.  Pecatonica is NW of Rockford and about a 90-min drive from St. Charles.

 

This is a 40-mile intermediate gravel ride in with 2100 ft. elevation on mostly gravel roads (65%), some country roads (35%) and hilly terrain.  This is a NO DROP ride with an expected overall average pace of 12-14+ mph. We are using the Freeport Bicycle Company's Frostbite 40 route but added a rest stop at mile 17. 

Recommend gravel, road or hybrid bikes with a minimum of 32MM gravel tires.  Ride will be canceled if there is heavy rain making muddy conditions within a few days of this ride.

Layer up for the wind and cooler temps, but be ready to peel off after you get warmed up. 


Post-ride lunch at Pecatonica Brewery.
