FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Is this a tough ride?  Yes. You should start training today.  Please consider competing in one of the many great events in the Northeast ahead of the race as well.  Battenkill should not be your first ride of the year.

 

2. Where does my entry fee go?  Road events like the Tour of the Battenkill have skyrocketed in recent years.  Police, professional staff, insurance, officials, and venues are all significant and increasing costs to any road cycling event.  All together, there are more than 500 people that are directly involved in the Battenkill weekend that are compensated in some way and their time is as valuable as yours!  We are also very proud to donate more than $15,000 each year to the many volunteer groups that engage the event and help to ensure rider safety along the course. 

 

3. What is Great American Cycling?  Great American Cycling/Anthem Sports is the organization that produces the Tour of the Battenkill, Tour of the Catskills, and many other epic cycling events across the Northeast, with a participation base of more than 50,000 riders and racers since 2004.   

 

4. Are there any rules?  Of course. Officials will enforce virtually all the traditional rules that are standard and expected within the sport.

 

5. What kind of bicycle should I use?  Any type of bicycle is generally ok to use, though most participants use a road bicycle.  Cyclocross and mountain bikes are very common as well.  We reserve the right to exclude any bicycle that could be a danger to you or other riders, however.  If you have a question about what bike to use, please contact us.
