The Rohrbach's Garage Bike Race - Saturday June 16th 2018
This is our first year to offer this ride! This is a 50 mile route with 7 significant climbs totaling 5000 feet of elevation in Alburtis Pennsylvania. The goal is to see how many loops you can do. This event takes place near the summer solstice so there is plenty of sunlight to do as many loops as possible. This ride is for serious cyclists who love to climb. The rider with the most loops and the best time for those loops will Win. This is roughly based on the Netflix movie "The Barkley Marathons". This ride is on roads with very little traffic and the views of the valley from the mountains is beautiful. Due to the lack of flat roads near Rohrbach's Garage, we do not have an easy or intermediate route option for this event.
The only rest stop will be at Rohrbach's Garage, the start and end of each loop. There is a bathroom available.
The route is clearly marked with road paint and bikers will be provided with cue sheets and contact numbers for SAG support.
