Love Valley Roubaix
The Love Valley Roubaix
The Love Valley Roubaix is the Brushy's own Gravel Grinder Classic with 3 full days of sexy gravel miles, grilling, beer, and fun with all of your new best friends. the event is put on by us at First Flight Bikes and courses were designed by our own Wesley Davidson.
Race all 3 days in the Omnium, which includes a Friday hill climb up Fox Mountain, the Saturday 100, Sunday 50, and a potential cash payout, or you can chhose to do one or two days picking between the Saturday 50 or 100 and the Sunday Classic Roubaix 50.
So pick your poison but no matter what you choose, bring your climbing legs. These challenging routes take you along many of the dirt roads that criss-cross the beautiful Brushy Mountains and countryside of Iredell, Alexander, Wilkes, and Yadkin counties. The Omnium is optional; pain and suffering are mandatory.
Looking for a challenge and can't wait until the Roubaix? These routes are great to ride any time of the year (just yield to horses and no cars allowed on main street Love Valley). More information can be found at lovevalleyroubaix.com follow the links below for Strava routes.
While this may be the "easiest" route of the weekend, remember that easy is a relative term and this is far from a walk in the park. There is plenty of challenge and punchy climbing to be found over this 50-mile course that will get your legs and lungs burning.
The big one. Includes the Saturday 50 mile plus 50 more wonderful miles exploring the many ups and downs that the Brushy Mountains have to offer. With somewhere around 10,000 feet of elevation gain, the majority of it in the last 50, this is not for the faint of heart.
The route that started it all. Ride some of the best gravel the area has to offer and explore the beautiful Brushy Mountains. Start in beautiful Love Valley and win you way up and over the Brushy Mountains and then back up and over again.
