Saluda Redbank 100

April 1

Recurring Event Event Series (See All)
 

The second leg of the Southeast Gravel Series, the event starts/finishes in downtown Saluda, SC which is known to have some of the best gravel terrains in the state.  The signature event is 100 miles and 5,000 feet of elevation gain.  There is also a 50-mile option with 2,200 feet of elevation gain.  Don’t let the lack of elevation fool you; some tough stretches of gravel are mixed in here. Finally, if you are new to gravel or looking for a family event, there is a 20-mile event to round out the field.  Strambecco rates the event as one of the best gravel grinders in the Southeast.

The Town of Saluda, located in Saluda County, is situated among low, gradually sloping hills fitted for growing crops. The Town of Saluda was named after the Saluda River, which forms one of the 3.3 square mile town’s borders. Initially, the land was inhabited by Cherokee Indians until 1755, when they signed a treaty with the British to accommodate Scotch-Irish pioneers. The English word “Saluda” came from the Cherokee word “Tsaludiyi,” meaning “Green Corn Place.” Today Saluda is recognized as a National Historic District.

The six-part Southeast Gravel Series, produced by Southeast Gravel, runs from March to August and include the Gravel Battle of Sumter Forest, Saluda Redbank 100, Race to Valhalla, Greenwood Gravel Grinder, Tryon Gravel Gallop, and Kershaw Gold Rush.
