The RCC Roubaix has been a staple in the RCC Gravel calendar with over 10-year history hosting this spring classic. Pioneers of “GRAVEL”, RCC started this event years before gravel was cool or gravel specific bikes were even a thing. By staying off the pavement, riding offroad becomes an adventure where google maps is your new best friend to endless possibilities. This year we are featuring a brand-new course. We have used these roads near Disley in past FUNdos. With 114m of climbing per lap, the legs will be screaming!
Parking and start of the neutral roll out. Located directly across the road from the Lumsden RCMP Detachment. Race course is 8km West of Lumsden. Both race distances will ride out to the race course as one group at 10am sharp. When choosing your race distance, be mindful you will adding approx. 25min(8km) prior to the race, and another 25min(8km) ride back to the campground in Lumsden. There will be a spot for riders to drop clothes, bags, food etc. at the start/finish.
For those of you who prefer to drive out to the course start/finish, you must first sign on at the campground before driving out. Parking will be limited. Plan to be ready to ride at the course start/finish at 10:20am.
