They may either register for all four rides at a discounted rate OR register individually and participate in three of the four rides included in the series (the GMM is one of these!) The other three rides in the series are: the Galax Grand Fondo on May 31, Big Pencil to Big Walker Charity Ride on June 21, and the Mule Hell Roubaix on June 22.
The Wes Hinkle State Farm Gran Mercer Metric is a road ride to benefit Child Protect of Mercer County, Inc. This scenic ride takes place in the Appalachian Mountains of Mercer and Summers Counties in southern West Virginia. The ride will begin and end at Concord University in Athens, West Virginia and continue along paved mountain roads throughout the two counties. Register for the Lick Creek 30 or the Extreme Metric Century route to give you a challenge! Find details for the ride here or check out the ride maps.
