      Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo 2019

      Join Brent Bookwalter for the challenging Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo, studded with bicycle racing on timed segments of tough climbs that provide an epic challenge to all. A perfect way to celebrate the end of the professional cycling racing season, by riding the routes Brent used for training earlier in the year. Three routes of varying length traverse some of the most beautiful roads in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Brent’s home in Asheville, North Carolina: Gran Route – 77 miles with 6,250 ft of climbing featuring three segments of gravel/dirt road Medio Route – 55 miles with 4,500 ft of climbing Piccolo Route - 39 miles with 2,850 ft of climbing This is an unusual opportunity to ride alongside female and male pro cyclists as they celebrate the end of their season racing all over the world and the country. Our pros ride in casual-mode on all three routes, and along with Brent, they are inspired by cyclists of all backgrounds and abilities. While the 39-mile Piccolo route is the perfect “first hard group ride”, the Medio and Gran routes are the perfect next-steps for gaining major bragging rights. When the spinning is done, everyone gathers at the finish to celebrate at the Binge Bash, a relaxed and family-friendly afternoon at Warren Wilson College. Great food & craft beer, friends, a peloton of Pros, prizes, raffle, and fun.
