The Tour De Shunk takes place in Monroeton, Pennsylvania. The event/race dates back to the mid-’90s when a few cycling-obsessed locals decided to link some of the best rides in the area into a race route, and a few decades later, we have the well-attended and physically challenging Tour De Shunk. Over the years of the Tour, proceeds have always graciously been donated to charity, and the race organizers have raised over 100,000 dollars since the event’s inception! The Tour de Shunk is usually a road riding event specifically (the road event will be in a separate Strambecco listing here). 2023 brings three gravel routes, suitable for gravel and lightweight mountain bike on the beautiful Pennsylvania state roads, which are nicely surfaced. There will be a 74-mile distance and a 52-mile variant with close to 4,000 feet of climbing. There are also four paved options of 25, 56, 73, and 107-mile routes. An always positive bonus is a post-ride pasta dinner for every rider to restore their energy banks. The advanced interactive views of the routes are listed below. The Tour De Shunk is a challenging mixed Surace off-road route and road event on some beautiful Northeast Pennsylvania roads. One of the Best Gravel Events in the Mid-Atlantic for 2023, as rated by Strambecco.
