November 10, 2019 Dirty Forks Gravel Grinder
Come check out some of the best gravel riding in Florida in the beautiful St. John's River three forks area. SCVS cycling club invites you to partake in our inaugural Dirty Forks Gravel Grinder! This ride will begin and end from the Three Forks Conservation area -Thomas O. Lawton Recreation access Area in Palm Bay, FL.
One of the special highlights of this property is its exquisite conservation area, which is a part of the St. John’s River Water Management District.
This area has helped to improve habitat for waterfowl, wading birds, river otters and shorebirds. The diversity of fish and wildlife provides a recreational resource for anglers, boaters and bird-watchers & alligators are seen year-round.
What type of bike would be best for this awesome ride?
We suggest any type of bike that one is comfortable on.....MTB, Gravel, Cxl, Fat tire —road bikes ONLY -if NOT less than a 28mm tire.
All 4 courses will provide an absolutely spectacular packed gravel ride -no roots -just simply beautiful gravel roads along the expansive sawgrass marsh lands with no motor vehicles on the entire course!
There will be SAG stops to keep you hydrated and fueled. Also there will be support on all courses in the event of any mechanical issues.
The SCVS board has worked very hard to come up with 4 courses that will appease any level of rider.
7.2mile is a great intro to the gravel area & a super family oriented kind of ride.
17.5 & 34 mile routes are a great way to spend a little more time out on these beautiful gravel roads.
51.5 gives the harder core type of rider a chance to push a little a little of the endurance side of things.
