THE 2021 EDITION of unPAved

Taking what we did (and loved) in 2019, adding in some of the changes we made for 2020, sleeping on it (see below) and voila! Of course, all of this is subject to change and could be edited dramatically. It's our working plan and updates will be communicated as they happen.

  • 800 PARTICIPANTS FOR unPAved & 400 PARTICIPANTS for SOMEpaved The unPAved courses are 120 or 90 miles, while SOMEpaved has a new version of the 50 mile course and a 30 mile course that stay in the farm country (less gravel but less hills!) as well as a 20 mile course that stays on the Rail Trail.
  • CHOOSE YOUR OWN START TIME Think you need all day (and into the night) to finish the ride? Start at dawn. Would rather the sun come up and warm things up a bit? Start later in the morning. Since the race is timed over specific segments there's no need for a mass-start (and all the chaos that comes with it).
  • SEGMENT RACING Six segments, adding up to 43 miles of the Full-120 course, will be timed to determine the 2021 King & Queen of the Whoopie Pies! More on the segments on the Courses Page.
  • AID STATIONS Fuel up, and catch up with the friendly folks at the multiple Aid Stations on course filled with yummy treats & hydration. No timing in the aid stations, so relax & enjoy!
  • OVERNIGHT CATEGORY New for 2021, start your ride on Saturday and camp out in Poe Paddy State Park that night before heading back on Sunday! Not timed, so you can focus on having a good time. We'll even transport your gear for you (just $10).
  • FUN ALL WEEKEND LONG Get un(G)ravelled on Friday Night in downtown Lewisburg, take a social spin and take part in the Fall Festival on Saturday, go for a big ride on Sunday followed with the DONEpaved Party, and join us for a Brunch Ride before heading home on Monday (this is a 3-day weekend, officially).
  • SAFETY FIRST A number of protocols will be in place to keep you, your fellow riders, volunteers and the community safe & healthy.

unPAved 2021 = What we did (and loved) in 2019 + What we learned in 2020

The warm nudges of summer are upon us, but we here at unPAved HQ already have thoughts of autumnal color as we gaze from Hobo Vista and crisp October air dancing through our heads. But more than anything we’re dreaming of miles and miles of that sweet PA gravel.


Registration Update

We already have over 1,000 fine folks registered for this year’s event! The unPAved categories are now full so we have set up a waitlist for Full-120 race. There are less than 200 spots available in the SOMEpaved 50, 30 and 20 mile route so if you want to come out to play ...Register Today >


COVID-19 / Health & Safety

In March 2020 we started posting optimistic photos of riders going through the tunnel by Poe Paddy, and it finally does feel like we are near the end of this. Pennsylvania is rolling back most of the restrictions of the past year, and we are doingthe same while continuing to try and keep you, our volunteers, and the local community healthy & safe. The current guidelines are on our website, and will be updated as necessary.
