Two "gravel grinder" courses: the 10-mile Milk Run features a backroads route with three covered bridges, working dairy farms and scenic views of the hills and valleys of Tunbridge and Royalton. The more strenuous 25-mile Beer Run course features Class IV segments, some single track and multiple "secret" paths through the woods. The optional adventure leg will give riders more than 4,000 feet of elevation gain for the entire ride.
All registrants will receive a fully supported ride with sag stops, an event T-shirt and free entry to the third annual NanoFest beer event held from noon-6 p.m. at the fairgrounds.
The registration table on Antique Hill opens at 8:30 a.m., with a mass start for both courses at 10 a.m. Proceeds benefit Royalton Community Radio, an all-volunteer nonprofit station that serves the communities of the Upper White River watershed.
