in Brownington/News/Northeast Kingdom

BROWNINGTON — The Re­demp­tion Gravel Bi­cy­cle Race will de­but at the Old Stone House Mu­seum in Brown­ing­ton on Sat­ur­day, Sep­tem­ber 1.

Currently, the event has over 250 rac­ers en­listed.

The race promises to be a challenge to both physical and mental toughness.

Racers have the choice of 100 miles or 50 miles of beautiful local gravel roads.

The Re­demp­tion Gravel Race was cre­ated by An­thony Moc­cia and Heidi My­ers, who cre­ated the renowned Rasputitsa Spring Clas­sic.

The Ra­putitsa Spring Clas­sic is held in East Burke in April and brings in over 1,500 rac­ers an­nu­ally.

Moc­cia and My­ers say they hope to grow the Re­demp­tion Gravel Race to the same level by next year and will turn this race into a three-day stage race for 2019.
