Do you have what it takes to complete the Paris Mountain X – Road Cycling Challenge? How many ascents can you do up Paris Mountain’s steep side (Furman)? Can you do the “X” (10 ascents)? Can you break a personal best number of Paris Mountain ascents? Come out and enjoy this free cycling event with a tailgating atmosphere. Enjoy suffering along with your fellow cyclists as we all take on the PMX challenge. The goal is to have a good time, eat some food, get in some training and simply enjoy yourself with other cyclists planning for the Gran Fondo Hincapie-Greenville on October 19th.
We’ll have some refreshments at the base of Paris Mountain however it’s encouraged that you bring some goodies to add/share with others. Doughnuts, fruits, cookies, bring anything that you know others will enjoy. Remember this isn’t a race (unless you make it one) and we’d like to keep the atmosphere as loose and festive as possible. Cheer on riders as they ascent and descend for the day.
This ride is your final training ride for the upcoming Gran Fondo Hincapie-Greenville on October 19th and an official Hincapie Cycling Society member event. Everyone is welcome. Ride at your own risk.
We will hopefully have some new PMX t-shirts designed for sale to commemorate your achievement but supplies will be extremely limited, pre-order your shirts if you want to guarantee yourself one (details coming soon).
To join the ride, all you have to do is sign-in on the whiteboard (and sign a waiver) before 8:00am so everyone can track rider progress and get to pedaling.
Start time is at 8am sharp at the base of Altamont, Rd.
Parking is limited at the base of Altamont, Rd – Alternative Parking can be made at the Wal-Mart Shopping Center (Benton Road) or Poinsett Park.
