4th of July

28 Mile Gravel Bike Ride

28 MILES NEW THIS YEAR!

Gravel Bike Ride

presented by the
Scripps Ranch Old Pros

Scripps Ranch Old Pros are proud to announce our inaugural Gravel Ride. With over 2,300 feet of climbing, this challenging 28-mile course is a thrilling journey through Scripps Ranch and Poway. Roughly half of the course is on single-track and fire-road dirt paths. You also get to share a portion of the course with our 28 and 50 mile road-riders and brag about your off-road fun!

Please note the Gravel Ride is only for skilled off-road bike enthusiasts! Although only 28 miles long, this ride takes much longer than our road-only rides. (Our advanced course test riders took over 3 hours). Don’t worry, there is a return option half-way for those who over-estimated their endurance level!

These sweet babies are light, breathable, and made from a super soft “Spectra Spun” cotton/poly blend.

They’re the very best shirts we’ve ever made, and every participant gets one free with registration.

A Really
Good Cause

Every year the Old Pros donate tens of thousands of dollars to youth scholarships and youth sports in Scripps Ranch.

Bibs

Your bib must be attached to an outer garment or to your bike frame so that it is visible. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the course. Keep your bib with you after you ride as it provides access to many post-ride amenities.

For
Your Safety

Please obey all traffic laws and regulations. All roads and paths used for the course are open to normal traffic. Watch for other bikes, cars, and pedestrians. The course will be marked with Scripps Ranch Bike Ride signs and red arrows. Sweep vehicles will provide transportation back to the Finish if needed.

There will be a slew of Marshalls to point you in the right direction and help with minor mishaps.

Aid stations are provided on all courses. The aid stations will provide water, fruit, snacks, and limited bicycle repair. If you get a flat tire or need a ride, please get a message to the next aid station and a vehicle will be sent to your location. If you require emergency medical assistance, call 9-1-1.

Bike repairs are provided by Black Mountain Bicycles. If you have a mechanical need or require other assistance on the course, call (858) 220.7961 for Run & Ride Help. (This phone number is also on your bib.)
