2019 Mt. Davis Gravel Grinder
September 28, 2019 @ 5:30 am - 1:00 pm
“The Quick and The Dead” – A Mt. Davis Gravel Grinder is a gravel road bicycle race from Confluence Pennsylvania. The route will take you up and over the highest point in the State, Mt. Davis. You can choose either the 68 mile long course with 50 miles of gravel and over 7’500 accumulative vertical feet or the 48 mile short course that is no small feat in itself to accomplish. Come for the challenge and stay for the fun! The name says it all. Will you be one of the Quick (fast) or one of the Dead (not so fast)?
This is a Nonprofit event with all of the proceeds going to the Local Volunteer Fire Departments of Somerset County that support the local Townships and Boroughs along the course. The venue will be held at the Confluence VFD’s event building on Barlow Street. Food & Entertainment will follow the race event. The Confluence VFD will be receiving the largest percentage of the proceeds for hosting the event.
