Apr 20 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 pm

The Bootlegger 100 is the most scenic and challenging gravel-road ride you will do this year!

There are two route choices:

107 mile gravel road ride with 9760 feet of climbing. The ride starts and ends in downtown Lenoir, NC and travels up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and down through beautiful and scenic Wilson’s Creek Gorge.

58 mile gravel road ride with 4583 feet of climbing. The ride starts and ends in downtown Lenoir, NC and travels through beautiful and scenic Wilson’s Creek Gorge.

Testimonials:

‘My main takeaways, based on seven or eight serious gravel events, Battenkill, a few of the major fondos including Levi’s and Hincapie and nearly 100 USAC races  was 1) that the race was unusually well organized. 2) It is one of the most challenging “100” length gravel races in the country and maybe THE most challenging.’    -Jay P. 5/14/18

‘The ride/race itself you couldn’t ask for a better organized ride. All the turns were marked either with an arrow and or orange flagging tapping hanging from the trees before the turns and on stakes or hanging from the trees after the turn to assure you that you were still on course. They had 3 controls/rest stops on the 60 miler. The guy at the 41.7 one was way over the top cooking up grilled cheese sandwiches which for sure hit the spot. The burritos and beer at the finish line were great also.’     -Larry B. 4/24/18
