    Located in northern Jefferson County, Ohio, on the historic Yellow Creek, the McLain Farm has been in the family since 1858.  The riders will line up in the field and start the first mile all on the farm before they exit the gates to the gravel.  The three distances include 100, 62.5, and 35 mile options, highlighting some of the best gravel roads in all of eastern Ohio.  With great climbs and even better descents, the ride is a mix of 70% gravel and 30% country roads showing off the area’s natural beauty. 

    Our goal in hosting this event is to promote northern Jefferson County and cycling.  We hope that all of our participants fall in love with the area and come visit the county throughout the year to enjoy the natural beauty, excellent roads, and the great local businesses.

    All race tickets include a post ride meal and 1 free beverage. Any non riders that want a meal and a beverage will have to purchase a hoe-down ticket. 

    All riders are REQUIRED to download the routes to a GPS enabled device. Helmets required.  All routes will be partially marked with signage, and are on open roads, all rules of the road apply.

    Registration required. 

    Description from AAC website:

    **Registration opens the morning of July 26. The event is sure to sell out, so mark your calendar!

    Tie in with the AAC and CAMP USA for the widely anticipated return of the in-person Craggin’ Classic Series! Uniting climbers around the campfire at world-class climbing destinations like the New River Gorge, the Series gathers the climbing community to celebrate, to learn and develop new skills, and to give back to the crag.

    Films, parties, presentations, vendor villages, local food, and craft beer bring climbers together—both seasoned and new, local and visiting—to strengthen and celebrate the bonds within the community. Clinics, led by professional athletes and local guides, help you build the skills necessary to level up your climbing—be it leading outside for the first time or pinning their way up a new route in the Torres del Paine.

    Join the community—you belong here!
