Gold Rush Gravel Grinder

If you haven’t done this race yet, I’d encourage you to give it a go. The course is a very scenic route through the hills, with flowing creeks and flowers galore! It’s a very challenging ride with a lot of steady climbing on mostly gravel roads. It’s a remote race, so you’ll be out there on your own for hours at a time. It’s semi-supported, so you’ll have a few places where you can get water, or maybe some raw potatoes, but you’ll also need to carry much of your own gear. It’s a race if you’re into racing, or just a ride if you want to get out and challenge yourself for the day. It ends with a party and plenty of food, as many Crow Peak brews as you can drink, great stories, new and old friends, and a few prizes if you’re lucky. It’s a gravel grinder, that we put on for you, to give you a glimpse of some of the beautiful and unique riding in the area! We hope you enjoy it, and we hope to have you all back year after year!

Find it and Grind it!

Trash Panda Red Dirt Ramble

October 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

The River Region Riders Cycling Association welcomes all gravel riders to the Trash Panda Red Dirt Ramble on Sunday, October 13, 2019. As cyclists transition from road to gravel for the fall season, this premier event offers an early solid test of gravel riding abilities that won’t disappoint the experienced or novice rider. With three distances to choose from (27, 48, 68) and aptly supported with rest stops and roving SAGs, riders will be challenged by varied unpaved terrain and plenty of climbs and descents located in Autauga County, Alabama.
Last year’s inaugural ride was a huge success with over 70 grinders participating. The feedback was very positive and we have taken great strides to improve the experience (i.e., bathroom facilities at start, etc.).

Net proceeds from the ride will benefit the Prattville Autuaga Humane Shelter.

Cuban Gravel Crisis

October 12, 2019 @ 7:00 am 5:00 pm

 The Cuban Gravel Crisis is a premier cycling event which takes place in conjunction with Route 66 Cuba Fest, in Cuba, MO. This year, October 20, 2018, will mark the race’s fourth year. We’re looking to make this event bigger and badder than ever, and we plan to invite some of the biggest riders in the biz. We offer 3 courses for riders to choose from; 20, 50, and 100 mile options allow riders of all skill levels to participate. The route starts with a paced roll-out along Historic Route 66 for about 1-1/2 miles before riders hit the gravel. Our routes boast a great mix of some incredibly fast riding gravel, and grueling hills. Our 50 mile course has 3,930’ of elevation gain, and the 100 has over 7,500’. To put this in perspective the DK 100 route has about 4,500’ of elevation gain. This is not only an intense and challenging gravel race, coupled with a great family event in a small town on Historic Route 66, it’s also the race with probably the coolest name of any in the world.   You Asked, We Listened! The Cuban Gravel Crisis is excited to announce that we’ll have the best craft beer in Missouri on tap for rider enjoyment (provided you’re 21 or older ?). The Springfield Brewing Company will be the official beverage sponsor of the 2018 Cuban Gravel Crisis on Saturday October 20, 2018. SBC is a huge supporter of local athletes and communities around the Ozarks. We’re looking forward to another fantastic year, and another year of SBC athletes on the starting line.

The Farmer’s Daughter Gravel Grinder

May 19, 2019 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

Register:  TBA

Distance: 100k

The Farmer’s Daughter Gravel Grinder is a non-competitive “gravel Gran Fondo” of 100 K, approximately 65 miles long, almost entirely on dirt roads with some sections of off-road thrown in as well. You’ll ride through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Northeast, with plenty of climbing, and plenty of fun descents to match. The ride, named after the Chatham Brewery’s ale born and brewed in Columbia County in beautiful upstate New York offers a challenging course with rewards at the finish. A selection of gourmet food truck vendors will be at the finish area to allow riders to relax and replenish after a long ride. All riders 21 years or older completing the ride will receive a coupon for one free pint of Chatham Brewery’s Farmer’s Daughter Ale.

The start/finish is at the Columbia County Fair Grounds. Google: 182 Hudson Avenue, Chatham, NY 12037. Start Time: 9:00 AM, Sunday May 15, 2016. Free Parking.

The course will be approximately 65 miles in length with over 6,000 feet of climbing. Approximately 45 miles of the ride will be on maintained gravel roads. Several “sections” will be on unmaintained dirt paths or double track trail. A cyclocross bike, gravel grinder bike, or adventure bike is optimal for the course, and a hard-tail mountain bike would also work well. Two fully supported Aid stations, portable toilets, and sweep vehicles will be provided. Be sure to carry some food and water, though, as well as the usual spare tubes, tools, and pump. Be prepared for a challenging but fun ride!
