The Road Apple Rally

The Road Apple Rally began in 1981 as a competition between horses and bicycles.  It has since become a bicycle-only race and stands as the longest-running annual mountain bike race in the United States. This celebrated mountain bike race features several divisions:

  • Pro
  • Category 1
  • Category 2
  • Category 3
  • Single Speed
  • Clysdale Cat 2 or Cat3
  • Athena Cat 2 or Cat3

The Category 3 division (beginner) is a 15-mile loop, all others ride the full 30-mile Road Apple Rally course.  Both courses feature the whoops, where you spend more time in the air than on the ground!  Course terrain also includes short climbs, flats, sandy arroyos, and sharp corners. The Road Apple Rally course is fast and fun, beloved by pros from across the U.S. as well as regional bikers.
