The Catskill Recreation Center, in cooperation with Overlook Mountain Bikes and the Catskill Brewery, welcomes you to the third annual Cross Mountain Crusher, a 55-mile gravel/road ride for the serious cyclist.
This event is designed for those who wish to challenge their physical abilities to the maximum while enjoying beautiful back country roads in the Catskill Mountains.
The 55-mile course features five hefty hills and 5000′ feet of elevation gain, with portions of the ascent of Cross Mountain exceeding 20%. There will be feed station support, and mechanical & vehicular support as needed. Many of the gravel roads are seasonal roads, so rough climbing and descending should be expected.
The Crusher also serves as timely stepping stone event for cyclists who plan on riding the Farmer’s Daughter Gravel Grinder in May and the Black Fly Challenge in June.
