Dirty Alta

This is not your typical gravel ride.
It is big all day adventure mostly on gravel.
Might be some single track or rougher terrain, but nothing a CX bike can’t handle.

Another epic 200km of gravel goodness.

Preliminary route (sorry southern Albertans!):

It’s the Cardinal Divide route with the second highest gravel pass in Alberta. If you are feeling really masochistic there is an out and back to a fire lookout! Very little civilization on this one, but it’s almost 100% gravel roads.

Gran Fondo Gravel Grinder Ride

June 27, 2020 @ 7:45 am 4:30 pm

We will start the event at the Badlands Community centre which is about 300m east of the world’s largest dinosaur. The 92 km route around the Badlands is designed to include some serious climbs, windy roads through coulees and gullies and a section of a “fair weather road” that is rolling and pretty spectacular. There are some cruising sections to give your legs a break from the deep gravel and muddy roads. This is a gran fondo so there will be aid stations every 25 km, with mechanical, medical and sag wagon support, but this is one challenging ride. Only those who can comfortably road ride 140 km should consider riding this event. As this ride is weather-dependent, please come prepared to ride the road event in case of cancellation.
