About The Tug Hill
Nestled between the Great Lakes and the Adirondack Mountains, the Tug Hill forested region is larger than Delaware or Rhode Island. Its 2,100 square miles comprise one of the most rural and remote sections of the Northeast, with a unique mix of thick forests, valley farmlands, deep gorges, waterfalls, and large flowing rivers; we are setting the stage for a one-of-a-kind gravel cycling experience.
Tug Hill is noted for its heavy snowfalls, usually described as the heaviest east of the Rockies. The combination of winter winds blowing over some 150 miles of Lake Ontario waters to the 2,100 feet elevations on the eastern edge creates these heavy snows. During the warmer weather, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, camping, birdwatching, bicycling, and gravel biking are popular activities. Click here to learn more about this beautiful region
With this backdrop, The North Winds Gravel Classic aims to elevate each gravel rider’s experience, by linking outdoor adventure and beautiful scenery with our cycling community.
