Loudoun 1725 Gravel Grinder
June 11, 2023
“The premier event building bridges for all user groups“
The Loudoun 1725 Gravel Grinder is a scenic bike ride along historic gravel roads in Northern Virginia. Located east of the Blue Ridge, in lush Loudoun Valley, these crushed rock roadways meander through awe inspiring beauty, past stone walls, grand estates, horse farms, wineries, bubbling creeks, tiny hamlets, and significant historical sites. Riding these roads is a sublime experience – like stepping back in time and cycling through history.
With over 300 miles of gravel road dating back to the early 1700s, Loudoun County Virginia boasts the largest and oldest intact network of gravel roads in the United States. When settlement in this area officially began in the year 1725, these roads were first used by mills and farms to get goods to market and by settlers to get to town and church. Today these special routes are used by residents, farmers, visitors, equestrians, and cyclists.
The event will start and finish at the very beautiful Foxcroft School just outside in the quaint town of Middleburg. From Foxcroft, riders will embark along a 40, 60, or 80-mile route (Note: routes are currently being adjusted to start and finish at Foxcroft School). The ride will be fully marked and supported, with well stocked rest stops, mechanical and SAG support, and great post-ride food and beer!
