RiotGRRRavel is a free unsupported 10, 21, or 33 mile gravel race in near Hastings, MN that is a fun, accessible ride that is FTW & family friendly.
The Skelton Thomas family, friends and volunteers organized the first Riotgrrravel in 2014 to introduce more women to gravel bike racing without having to race in a 100 mile course with a large percentage of male participants. Each year it has continued to grow, and we are grateful for the Skelton Thomas’s leadership in organizing the event from 2014–16.
Special thanks to Victoria Malawey, family, and friends as well, as they took over from 2017-18.
New as of 2019, Seven Spokes Bike Shop and Seven Spokes Racing will be organizing the event. We are very excited and very grateful for this opportunity.
Female, trans*, and gender non-conforming riders will receive priority in registration as this event is designed to support them. We encourage cisgender men who wish to participate to ride with a female, trans, gender non-conforming rider, or a family member (any gender) under 18. Alternatively, men who wish to support the event may choose to volunteer (contact Maggie at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer).
The start and finish line will be at the Hastings Hope Lutheran Church at 16898 Michael Ave Hastings, MN. We are grateful for the support and gracious hospitality of Hope Lutheran Church and excited to embark on our sixth year of collaborating with them.
Ride whatever kind of bike you want or have … Road bike, Mountain Bike, Cross Bike, Tandem, Single/Fixed, Snow Bike, or Unicycle.
