Event Details

Each year the course’s four gaps are drawn from a selection of seven gaps; Appalachian Gap, Lincoln Gap, Roxbury Gap, Moretown Gap, Rochester Gap, Middlebury Gap, and Brandon Gap. The popular 6-gap ride includes all but Moretown Gap. Depending on road construction projects, which have been many, the course will vary from year to year creating a unique ride each time.Flyin Ryan is the primary beneficiary of this event. Registration is now open! 

Some More Info on the Course…

The 2020 Gran course will again push the limits with 11K+ feet of climbing over 130+ miles and 4 mountain gaps. The course will included a double ascent of Middlebury Gap (climbing both sides), once over Brandon Gap and of course, the pinnacle climb, Lincoln Gap. The course begins in the village of Bristol, Vermont, and heads east towards Lincoln. Climbing, albeit light, to begin with, starts just 1.5 miles in. You’ll climb up towards the center of Lincoln and then on towards Ripton and the first mountain climb, Middlebury Gap. From Middlebury Gap, you’ll descend into Hancock and then climb out of the valley heading north towards Warren and the turn to Lincoln Gap; this is where the real challenge begins.
