Pedal Power to the People:
Royalton Community Radio’s 4th Annual Pedal Power to the People will be held on Saturday, August 19th at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds in Tunbridge, Vermont. This important fundraiser for RCR/WFVR-LP/Free Vermont Radio is being supported by a grant from the Byrne Foundation and is being “ridden” in conjunction with the 2nd Annual NanoFest…a local craft beer festival featuring 9 microbreweries, food and live music from Turnip Truck and Red Barn Hayloft.
The PPP will feature two scenic backroads “gravel grinder” rides that will accommodate riders of all abilities:
The Milk Run…This moderate gravel grinder will feature gentle climbs and descents that will pass by 5 iconic dairy farms, pass through 3 covered bridges, flow by brooks and ponds and conclude with a well-deserved, bottoms up “party” at NanoFest. Approximate route length of 10 miles….details here: https://www.strava.com/routes/9564917
The Beer Run…A challenging 25 mile gravel grinder (Growler) * on Class 3/Class 4 roads/town and private trails that will feature nearly 4000′ of vertical, spectacular views of the Northfield Ridge and Killington/Pico peaks and a ride by of both of Tunbridge’s two breweries: Brocklebank Craft Brewing and Upper Pass Beer Company. Route details here: https://www.strava.com/routes/9565591
* There will be a modified option of this ride (Howler) that will pass by one brewery with a route length of approximately 15 miles.
Advance/walk-up registration fee of $35 includes event t-shirt, ride support, a sag stop on the Beer Run and free admission to the NanoFest for all PPP registrants.
