Final routes for the 2019 Dirty Apple are currently under construction – the links below are NOT FINAL. Final routes will be emailed to all pre-registered riders the day before the event.
All routes are approximately 50% dirt/50% paved roads.
While there are no killer hills on the 40-miler, this route is not flat. There are a few long stretches of pavement that eventually lead to dirt, we promise.
Classic Dirty Apple – 40 miles, approx 3,500′ of climbing
Suggested start time: 9:30 am

We liked last year’s route so much we are keeping it in the mix this year but with small updates and beginning at the new start location. This route is good for cyclists who are comfortable on dirt roads and looking for a challenge – but don’t want to be out all day.
Dirty Apple – 50 miles, approx 5,000′ of climbing
Suggested start time: 9:00 am

Need a few more miles? We added in a few of our favorite hills on the 50 miler to dial up the fun and showcase a few more of our favorite roads.
Rotten to the Core – 63 miles, approx 6,000′ of climbing
Suggested start time: 8:30 am

Our most intense route – Now a full metric! We updated the route to add more hills on dirt or questionably-maintained paved roads. We recommend this route for those who are gravel grinder regulars and really, really like hills.
