Dirty Kitten Gravel Race

Info and Registration Page: https://www.bikereg.com/dirty-kitten-gravel

DIRTY KITTEN GRAVEL RACE - AUGUST 3, 2019 @ LOCUST HILL FARM & PRESERVE

Presented by Vanderkitten-Entourage Racing

A gravel road race on private farm roads at the base of Cedar Mountain in Rapidan, Virginia.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Locust Hill Farm encompasses over 5,000 continuous acres of privately-owned land. Only 90 miles from the center of Washington, D.C., the farm is surrounded by untouched, historic land and borders Cedar Mountain (a.k.a. Slaughter’s Mountain) where a historic Civil War battle took place in 1862.

This race will explore Locust Hill Farm and Preserve on privately-owned gravel farm roads that run along the Robinson River, pass serene creeks and ponds, weave through open fields, and cross wooded forest trails. The area is truly a gravel enthusiast’s dream as well as a beautiful wildlife haven.

The “Dirty Kitten” is co-hosted by Vanderkitten-Entourage Racing and local equestrian group, Bull Run Hunt. This is its inaugural year as an official gravel race (last year was a non-competitive gravel grinder). Your entry fee includes an amazing gravel experience, ride support, post-ride food and beverages (alcoholic & non-alcoholic), commemorative event swag, and payout/merchandise prizes for the top 3-5 finishers in each category/field provided by our kickass sponsors (see prize list).

Women's Steady Road Ride

Women's Steady Road Ride

Ride start time: 5:30pm

Location: Rocktown Bicycles

Length: 1.5 to 2.5 hours (maybe longer depending on light)

Distance: 25 to 40 miles (again depending on light available)

Required to Bring:  A working taillight, headlight, and flat repair kit

Ride pace: Steady; quicker than a social ride, we will be sitting somewhere in the 14-16mph range. This is not a "crush everyone" ride. I want to emphasize that. We are not out here to intimidate or "race". This ride is meant to bring women together to have fun, and encourage and challenge each other in a friendly environment.

Some notes on group riding:

  • We don't cross over the yellow line

  • On busier roads, we will ride single file, the widest we will ride is 2 riders next to each other, still riding more on the right side of the lane

  • If a car is coming up from behind the group, please call out "car back" for the group, we will go single file if necessary

  • On rural roads, we don't ride across the whole road

  • On rural roads, please call out "car up" if a car is coming the opposite direction

  • 3pm: Start of group steady ride, including gravel, and some of our favorite roads. Average pace will be 15-17mph. This is an optional ride!

  • 5pm(ish): Group ride returns. Cookout begins.

  • 5-9pm: Rocktown Cokout! We provide the food and drink (please feel free to BYOB as well), you bring your awesome self and friends and family!

Kelly has made a route for the 3pm group ride that we think will be a lot of fun! There is gravel, so please come prepared with fix-a-flat items. You may find the route HERE. If you are unfamiliar with the area, we encourage you to download the route to your cycling computer of choice or print a cue sheet to have with you.

Women's Steady Road Ride

Ride start time: 5:30pm

Location: Rocktown Bicycles

Length: 1.5 to 2.5 hours (maybe longer depending on light)

Distance: 25 to 40 miles (again depending on light available)

Required to Bring:  A working taillight, headlight, and flat repair kit

Ride pace - Steady; quicker than a social ride, we will be sitting somewhere in the 14-16mph range. This is not a "crush everyone" ride. I want to emphasize that. We are not out here to intimidate or "race". This ride is meant to bring women together to have fun, and encourage and challenge each other in a friendly environment.

Some notes on group riding:

  • We don't cross over the yellow line

  • On busier roads, we will ride single file, the widest we will ride is 2 riders next to each other, still riding more on the right side of the lane

  • If a car is coming up from behind the group, please call out "car back" for the group, we will go single file if necessary

  • On rural roads, we don't ride across the whole road

  • On rural roads, please call out "car up" if a car is coming the opposite direction
