Get ready to challenge yourself like never before at one of America’s largest single-day road races: The Tour of the Battenkill! That’s right, the annual “Queen of the Classics” returns to upstate New York on April 29, 2023 for an incredibly fun, all-inclusive, single-day cycling event and party. Though our name and superlatives are super cool, we earn them via our course and after party. Our event offers some of the best gravel riding in the country that takes you across covered bridges, scenic views, and over 5,000 feet of elevation gain. It’s a spirited test of grit that will be celebrated in style with our rockin’ after-party with a free beer garden (if 21+), live music, and food. 

Though our Gran Fondo is our legendary distance, you now have three events to choose from: The legendary 75.7-mile Gran Fondo, a 45-mile Medio Fondo, and the 24.2-mile Piccolo Fondo. All are welcome to pick their distance, reserve their spot, and join the exclusive club of riders who can say they’ve ridden The Tour of the Battenkill.
