Royalton Community Radio's 4th Annual Pedal Power to the People is an important fundraiser for RCR/WFVR-LP/Free Vermont Radio. This year, the ride is being supported by a grant from the Byrne Foundation and is being "ridden" in conjunction with the 2nd Annual NanoFest, a local craft beer festival featuring 10 microbreweries, food, and live music from Turnip Truck and Red Barn Hayloft.
The PPP will feature two scenic backroads "gravel grinder" rides that will accommodate riders of all abilities:
The Milk Run...This moderate gravel grinder will feature gentle climbs and descents that will pass by 5 iconic dairy farms, pass through 3 covered bridges, flow by brooks and ponds and conclude with a well-deserved, bottoms up "party" at NanoFest. Approximate route length of 10 miles.
The Beer Run...A challenging 25 mile gravel grinder (Growler) * on Class 3/Class 4 roads/town and private trails that will feature nearly 4000' of vertical, spectacular views of the Northfield Ridge and Killington/Pico peaks and a ride by of both of Tunbridge's two breweries: Brocklebank Craft Brewing and Upper Pass Beer Company.
* There will be a modified option of this ride (Howler) that will pass by one brewery with a route length of approximately 15 miles.
Advance/walk-up registration fee of $35 includes event t-shirt, ride support, a sag stop on the Beer Run and free admission to the NanoFest for all PPP registrants.
