Cranko de Mayo – Mad River Riders
May 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us for an exhilarating tour on the dirt roads (with a touch of pavement and a little Class IV) of the beautiful Mad River Valley to kick off the spring biking season! Starting and finishing at the Lawson’s Finest Liquids taproom in Waitsfield, VT (parking details to come), you will be rewarded with incredible views and pass through three covered bridges! We have two options for your cycling pleasure:
- The Solo Bien (Just Fine): 29 miles with 3,700 feet of happy climbing! http://www.strava.com/routes/2944368388179031412
- The Demasiado (Too Much): 47 miles with 6,000 feet of even happier climbing! http://www.strava.com/routes/2944361332641920658
There will be one major and one mini aid station along each route and all participants will receive a commemorative poster and a Lawson’s koozie!
Riders will start in waves, fastest riders first, mellowest last:
- 10:15 AM – hammerheads – Demasiado course

- 10:25 AM – medium pace – Demasiado course
