Drops to Hops is an all new event sponsored by The Clark Sports Center and Brewery Ommegang! This event offers an Elite Race and a Citizen Race. The Elite Race covers 43 miles and is for experienced racers only, equivalent to USCF Cat 3-4. Men and women will race together. The Citizen Race is a fun race that covers 23 miles. Despite being labeled as a race, we encourage riders of various levels to participate in the "B" field as long as they are comfortable with the distance and terrain. No experienced "licensed" racers will be allowed to ride in the "B" race. The "B" race will also be a shortened, less difficult route than the "A" course.
Both races will start and end at Brewery Ommegang, where at the conclusion of the race, awards will be presented and Ommegang will host a party at the finish line for racers and families. You must be 21 to drink.
Please note: The biking leg of the race is an open course that shares the road with traffic and may only be completed by participants who are 16 years of age or older.
