Are you are looking for a cycling challenge, a great ride with friends and an opportunity to kick back afterward to swap stories?
Well, we have the ride for you. Raid Rockingham combines elements of the area’s best roads on a supported course, with a great party awaiting you at the finish. There will be Smuttynose beer on tap and some tasty grub to match. We’ll even throw in some awesome swag and prizes…….because that’s how we roll.
What's a Raid? – Our definition? A raid is a challenging route that includes a significant amount of packed-gravel riding and at least one major climbing segment. Some would call it a dirt road randonee, we just call it a Raid. This is not a race. A properly prepared rider and bike of most any type can do this. Our guarantee – you will finish tired but feeling accomplished. It’s probably not for everybody, but you’re not everybody, right?
This Raid – Raid Rockingham features a 100K (approx. 62 Mile) route that includes about 25 miles packed gravel roads and one Category 5 climb (average 3% over a mile, climbs about 900 feet). That’s easy enough, eh?
