The protagonists of community, freedom, and unity through cycling. Rasputitsa is more than a gravel cycling race. It’s a homegrown self-supported challenge of the mind, body, and soul that instills people with a connected sense of place and purpose. It’s an authentic experience that embraces: The Unknown. Change. All people. All bikes.
You'll find Caroline's Dream at the Dirty Deeds Farmer's Market Friday, April 29, 2022 / 5pm - 8pm / Burke Mountain Hotel or potentially on the course during the event Saturday, April 30, 2022.
Caroline's Dream is also partnered with these same fine folxs for their other events:
Vertical - Women's only event and the weekend is about coming together in nature. Though all rides will have expert leaders available to help the focus isn't on instruction. There is a choice between gravel or mountain biking but all participants will fly fish. Caroline's Dream is gravel riding, fishing and camping all weekend and providing gifts for all the women participants.
Grateful - This is one day of 3 different bike races that can be done on a gravel, cyclocross, or mountain bike. No podiums. No prizes. The victory is a smile at the end of the day. You'll find me with the Caroline's Cruiser selling at the event Farmer's Market.
