Triple Peak Gran Fondo
Element Adventures is proud to announce the third annual Triple Peak Gran Fondo! The Triple Peak route has it all: plenty of miles, (25, 57, 71, 98 and 106 mile options) beautiful pastoral vistas, and stiff mountain climbs (with accompanying sweet descents!) One of the peaks is even a gravel climb! But don’t worry, if you don’t like gravel, you can still get a century in on the Triple Peak Alt route: still three giant climbs, but no gravel. The Double Peak and Single Peak routes provide shorter challenges, but adventure nonetheless! Over mostly rural roads, you’ll get to see the beauty of northwest Virginia, as well as a fair bit of West Virginia. And we don’t want to leave out the Fun route, a shorter ride without a major mountain peak, but still great riding and views, perfect for a family outing. Visit the website for Ride with GPS route information.
Prizes will be given to 10 winners total (5 men, 5 women) top man and top woman. Overall winners: A Triple Peak Gran Fondo KOM/QOM jersey and a free entry to another Element Adventures event. Top time each climb: free entry to another Element Adventures event. Winners can only win one prize, so you’ll be awarded the highest prize you qualify for.
A portion of each participant’s entry fee will be donated to Congregational Community Action Project (CCAP), a local charity. We ask that all participants bring a canned food item to donate to the food pantry. CCAP maintains a food pantry, operates a clothing center with all sizes, and offers assistance in other areas such as rents, utilities and prescription drugs. Help raise funds for this organization that does so much in Winchester/Frederick County!
