Blackberry Farm Pro-Am Classic

September 16-19, 2018

Guests will spend three days riding with cycling personalities – including George Hincapie, Robbie Ventura, and Christian Vande Velde. One of those three days will feature the competition elements for the Pro-Am Challenge, with three stages of competition. The Pro-Am is a great event for enthusiastic amateur riders of varied abilities, comfortable with pedaling approximately 30 to 60 miles per day, with some fun and challenging climbs! Options to shorten the route or lessen the elevation are available. Participants can choose to watch or compete in one or all of the competition stages. In addition, cyclists will be working together to win $30,000 of charity money through the Blackberry Farm Foundation, which was created to give back to children and foodways related causes. Throughout the three days of riding, participants will have full Lexus SAG support, nutrition stations for pre, during and post-rides, bike maintenance, and more. In addition to these scheduled rides for the Pro-Am, there will be second ride options for spouses or anyone who would like a leisure experience. These rides can be customized for a more relaxed pace through the rolling hills of the area, guided by our Blackberry team.
