Group Training Expedition: Sunday, August 27, 2017

You are invited join in a group training ride designed to help ready riders for the Alpine Loop, Shenandoah Mountain Century and Shenandoah Mountain Adventure routes of the 2017 Alpine Loop Gran Fondo.

At the training event, participants who are ramping up for the Alpine Loop should be prepared to tackle a 71-mile ride with 7,000+ feet of climing, including unpaved roads. Equipment should be suitable for the conditions.

Riders training for the Shenandoah Mountain Century and Shenandoah Mountain Adventure can expect a 61-mile ride with 6,000 feet of climbing on entirely paved roads.

During the ride, you’ll have access to full support from SAG vehicles and enjoy the guidance and expertise of local cycling pro’s and seasoned Alpine guides.

At the ride’s completion, enjoy a meal, relax, recover and enjoy discussing training tips and preparation with Jeremiah and other professional cyclists.

This training ride is a great opportunity to get a glimpse of some steep climbs and dirt roads of the 2017 Alpine Loop Gran Fondo. It’s timed to provide a great training boost in preparation for the Gran Fondo. If you can’t participate in the ‘Fondo, this ride is a great adventure in and of itself!

Registration will be active through Wednesday, August 23, or until the event reaches capacity, whichever happens first.
