Jack Skellington Ride 2023

As we enter into the fall season, VeloConcepts is pleased to announce the annual Jack Skellington Ride set to take place on November 4th, 2023. This fun-filled and exciting bike ride is the perfect way to celebrate the end of fall and kick off the winter gravel season.

This year’s Jack Skellington Ride is set to be bigger and better than ever before, with a variety of route options designed to test the mettle of even the most experienced riders. Participants can choose from three different routes tailored to their preferences and skill levels. The first route option is the 64-mile road ride that takes riders to Mini Drive and back. For those looking to get off the beaten path, we have added a 58-mile gravel route that is guaranteed to get your heart rate pumping. Finally, for the more leisurely riders, we have a shorter 33-mile road route that will still provide ample opportunity to soak up the beautiful fall scenery.

Now, here’s the fun part! Throughout the routes, we have hidden a bunch of jack-o-lanterns, and the participants that locate all of them will be granted a special prize. But there’s a catch, in order to participate in the pumpkin hunt, riders must have a GPS-enabled computer, a Strava account, and the ability to start a new “lap”. The details of this contest will be announced on the morning of the ride, so you’ll have to be there to find out what it takes to win.

The Jack Skellington Ride at VeloConcepts has become a popular annual tradition, drawing in riders from across the region. This year, we’re expecting an even bigger crowd as more and more cyclists are looking for ways to connect with their communities and enjoy the thrill of the open road. The event is a fantastic opportunity to get outside, get some exercise, and enjoy the company of fellow riders while celebrating the Halloween Weekend.

So what are you waiting for? Mark your calendar for November 4th, 2023, and make sure to join us for the Jack Skellington Ride at VeloConcepts. It promises to be an unforgettable experience filled with adventure, fun, and mystery. We look forward to seeing you there!
