You can bring your fancy wheels for this one but do not forget your climbing legs, and yes, they can have hair on them too. We don't judge! This course is 59 miles long taking you through the mountain valleys and ridge tops of beautiful WV. The route has tons of long flat section (really) along with two long stead climbs to remind you that this is a Appalachian Bicycle Racing Association event.
The road conditions of the course are wonderful so break out the deep dish carbon wheels for this one. The race starts and finishes along side the beautiful Cheat River in Rowlesburg, West Virginia. This small mountain town offers a cyclist everything they wish for when dreaming of the perfect race course. Like beautiful river views, streaming descents, big climbs, gear pounds flats and a swimming hole at registration/awards area!. That's right.. Bring a towel as the river is clean and perfect to cool off in after a long race!
