Copley Gravel Grinder

Join us for a bike ride through Lamoille County’s most beautiful back roads!

Led by Copley’s own Travis Knapp, CRNA, the Gravel Grinder offers a scenic bike ride through picturesque Morrisville and Elmore, Vermont and includes a class 4 road, hills, curves, and slopes in support of Copley Hospital, the region’s community hospital.

The proceeds from our first year’s Gravel Grinder benefitted the construction of our new MRI Suite.
