Clay Road Classic
March 27 @ 6:00 pm - March 28 @ 6:00 pm
Immerse yourself in a true gravel experience. The ride is a self-supported endurance gravel road event that takes you through some of the most beautiful clay roads in the country – maybe even the world! Thomasville is home to over 300 miles of clay roads in the interconnecting Red Hills Plantation Region that covers over 300,000 acres. You will need a phone with a “Ride With GPS” type app or a GPS device to navigate the route properly. There will be no markings or directions on the route. Revel in the complete gravel adventure at your own pace whether it be race pace, party pace, or a site seeing social pace (though recognition will be given to the fastest finishers). Enjoy a clay road ride with a few hundred friends, hang out for some good food, spectacular bike related vendors, craft beer and live music-All In One Place- Historic Downtown Thomasville!! Hubs and Hops Bike Shop and Tap Room will host the 3rd annual Thomasville Clay Road Classic on those clay roads with routes to include a 25-mile, a 50-mile, and a 100-mile route starting from the Bike Shop and the Ritz Amphitheater. Ride start times will be staggered with the first ride leaving at 7:00am. The weekend of March 27th-28th includes: Friday night dinner, packet pick-up, draft beer, and live music; Saturday includes a breakfast, the Thomasville Clay Road Classic ride, lunch and beer, numerous bike related vendors, giveaways, and recognition of the top male and female for each distance. Local downtown camping at the event will be available with the use of the YMCA for showers. Also visit the local shopping and dining sites available within 2 blocks.
