Dirt roads. A covered bridge. 5,000 feet of elevation gain. Get ready to challenge yourself like never before at one of America’s largest single-day road races: The Tour of the Battenkill. Now under new ownership, the 15th Annual “Queen of the Classics” is returning to upstate New York on May 11th with a fun, all-inclusive party with plenty of food and craft beer! You now have three events to choose from: The legendary 75-mile Gran Fondo, a 42-mile Medio Fondo, and a new 26 Mile Piccolo Fondo. Pick your distance, reserve your spot, and join the exclusive club of riders who can say they’ve ridden The Tour of the Battenkill.
