Beginners and advanced riders alike will enjoy the all new Grit & Grind Gravel Grinder!
The course is pancake flat, fast, rideable. The course starts with 1 mile of asphalt then, after taking the first right hand turn, you meet smooth, flat, fast gravel and ride it to mile 3. The back side of the course at mile 3 (Robinson Road), has less gravel and more dirt (will become muddy if we get rain). Then, turning back onto Dacus Lake Road, you get back to smooth, flat, fast gravel to the mile 1 intersection. The turn around at the start/finish will be on asphalt.
The event starts at 9:00 AM for all divisions. Each division will start in 5 minute stages and laps are roughly 6.5 miles long. While Male and Female riders will be awarded separately (Awards will be given to the top 5 male and female winners in each division (A,B, and C events).), all riders will race at the same time. Each rider will receive a lap split time and a finish time. The event and course are very beginner friendly and all types of bicycles are welcome!
