Since 2013, we have been involved in the effort to unite cyclists, bring economic opportunity to a remote areas of Vermont, and give back to growing the sport of cycling with every dollar we profit.
We call it the 3 C's: Cycling, Community, and Charity.
Two friends (Anthony Moccia and Heidi Myers) decided to create a gravel road race in the most untouched, remote section on Vermont known as the Northeast Kingdom. It was really that simple. We started with $50 in our pocket and a dream. Today, both the Rasputitsa Spring Classic and the Redemption Gravel Race have grown to be some of the best Vermont Gravel Road Races attracting riders from over sixteen states and four provinces.
We did this because we love bikes, and the race is nothing more than that passion. We work hard to grow the cycling community through our actions and financial contributions.
More than anything we care about our racers. We are at the finish line shaking hands. We are constantly seeking their advice and input. We ride with our racers. We are small town, and we like it that way.
