The Red Kite Ronde is an Endurance/Gravel cycling event that starts and finishes at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. The Ronde traverses east across Knox, and Coshocton Counties on a route that includes hills, dirt and gravel roads, and other challenges brought forth by the terrain. The Ronde will consist of a marquee 200 kilometer challenge and an 80 kilometer route.
In addition to the ride, which will serve as a focal point. The route will spend little time at Kenyon, however, we have worked with the College to develop a robust start/finish expo.
Kenyon College will host, house, and dine event participants and their supporters. In addition to the beautiful campus and surroundings, Kenyon College will treat Ronde participants to excellent housing and dining at budget-friendly rates. Ronde participants will be treated to farm-to-table dining before and after the event with organic meals sourced within a 10 mile radius of campus. Participants will also have the opportunity to spend the weekend housed in dorms on Kenyon’s historic and attractive campus.
