Description

It will be a great day on the bike for The Forge Gravel Grinder. Come experience epic riding terrain in the Town of Webb on their well groomed high speed trail system. 26.2 is the theme of the day but make no mistake, it will be a barn burner. Hop up on your gravel, cx, 29er hardtail or fatbike. Fast is always fun. The surface is smooth pavé,(pa-vey, you know, like how your Belgian bike friends describe dirt road)  the trail system is wide and you're invited to ride as competitively or as comfortably as you like. Recommended low gearing minimum 34/30 for a supported 1 loop grinder from Thendera to Big Moose and back. The Forge is destine to be an instant classic. The Gravel Grinder will be a timed event with overall winners (Male/Female/Masters Male/Female). Race start will be a Trail entrance at Rt 28/Herreshoff Rd. just past the Railroad Bridge. Race will end at the George T. Hiltebrandt Rec Center @ 201 North St., Old Forge, NY

Riders that complete The Forge 26.2 Gravel Grinder in less than 90 minutes (~17.5 mph) will receive the Hammer, an award worthy of it's name for those that bang out an aggressive ride showing their true medal.

THE FORGE 26.2 Milie Gravel Grinder is the bike component of the inaugural Old Forge Ky-Tri (kayak, run, bike) event set for the same weekend (Sept 11/12). To learn more about the Old Forge Ky-Tri please visit the event website @ OLD FORGE KY-TRI
