Rogers Roubaix Growlin' Gran Fondo Gravel Ride

Rogers Roubaix offers up some of the rowdy roads in the Rogers area. These can be minimum maintenance roads or just some sketchy B- roads. Don’t let this intimidate you if it’s something you don’t typically ride. Most of these roads lead you to something totally awesome, like old stuff that is super cool to take pictures with you and your buddies. The gravel promoters aren’t completely evil, they just have mechanics who planned the routes! So, the best thing to know is that these roads are coming, conditions probably might be tough, but you’ll be fine, promise. You might have to suffer through it a bit, but it will be worth it. Even if you are physically prepared, you may face a mental battle slogging through a tough section of the course. Even if it doesn’t lead you somewhere cool, at least it’s not the Land run 100!
