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.
