Join ORS for this year’s third annual Dirt Road Classic, the Muddy Onion. Come enjoy a 34 mile (mostly) dirt road ride in and around Montpelier’s beautifully-scenic dirt roads. This unique “gravel grinder” will feature rolling hills, historic farms, beautiful views and plenty of climbing: about 4000ft of it! It’s the perfect way to kick off the spring riding season.
Registration is $25 and you can sign up early at Bikereg.com or the day of for $30 at Onion River Sports starting at 8:30am.
Registration is limited to 200 people and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Cross VT Trail's Build A Bridge Campaign to construct a bridge over the Winooski River in East Montpelier. This project is a critical link in completing a car-free bike path from Montpelier to Plainfield and beyond.
Start/Finish: The ride will start at 9:30am from the Onion River Sports parking lot. The finish and post ride meal will be in the parking lot behind the shop.
