The 5th annual Analog 4x4 features four (4) Class 4 roads, 40 miles. The ride will feature some of the SKOV (Southwest Kingdom of Vermont’s) most scenic gravel riding. Plus ya know, Class 4 roads. Poultney’s road maintenance budget is basically non-existent, so our class 4 roads are wonderfully terrible. Expect wash outs, ‘gravel’ the size of GMO grapefruits, steep grades and wonderful views. The ride weaves in and out of the woods and farm lands. Plenty of climbing but lots of great eye candy, like cows and red barns, and a rushing very cold river.
The 4x4 is about fun, so there’s pre-ride espresso, post and mid ride beers, swimming in the really cold river, camping, a chill group ride pace, and lots of stopping for photos and the like. Hang out at Analog's old HQ in the woods, after the ride for a bonfire and roasting stuff on a stick.
Casual pace, don’t bring your racer outfit. Crocs > Clipless
