Come ride
with me

I love cycling. A bike isn’t just for the road, or just for racing, or just a tool I use to do my job. It’s a way to see new things, meet new people, have fun with friends. Ride through forests, over mountains, by the ocean, see the sunrise, see the sunset. It’s a way to live life, to push your limits. Enjoy the adventure. Come ride with me.

Stunning Routes

Our experienced route master has come up with an event course that is equally beautiful as it is challenging. With a well-balanced mix of paved and unpaved, flat and hilly, fast and technical, social and competitive; both the 110k and the 140k routes will make for a great day of cycling.

As much as we love riding the bike, we do like a good party as well. We will celebrate the Gravel Raid experience with a support program that has the good things in life. We’ll provide entertainment with live music, a DJ, storytellers at the campfire, and yes, we’ll have the marshmallows ready too. With the entertainment we’ll provide hearty food and tasty drinks.
