Warm up for the P2A ?
Yo! Check this out.
It appears that there is going to be a good event happening a couple weeks before the P2A.
I am sure some of you have heard about it already.
its the Tour of Pelham.
here's the link to the site.
It is sure to be a fast and furious spin through the mud and slop.
I don't imagine there is gonna be a single speed category.
But I will be there for sure with my vintage Raleigh Grand Prix set up like a SS cross bike.
Any one else round this forum planning on attending?
I will hopefully get out on the course with the local cross riders ahead of time. And I will gladly describe it for Y'all.
Hope to see ya there!
I live in Pelham; so I will be there one way or another...I don't even need to drive to the start/finish. Looking forward to this one
Also on that page you linked, it doesn't give the race date. It's Saturday, April 5.

I don't think I'll race this one, but I'll probably offer my services as a volunteer. I also hope to ride the course beforehand, if not on event day.
Any idea of what the different types of roads listed are ??
What's a farm lane compared to a seasonal road ?
An educated guess would be that the 'seasonal roads' would be the roads through St. John's conservation area (Sulphur Springs and Orchard Hill), these roads are very steep, narrow gravel roads.
A farm lane would be tractor paths through the vineyards, like going through the vineyard during the Squeezer.
I did some riding around Sulphur Springs/Orchard Hill on a road bike last year. It reminds of the Dundas Valley area. There are quite a few "escarpment" type climbs around that area.
