Gold Rush Gravel Grinder

Gold Rush Gravel Grinder

the Lakota worship the Black Hills as the Paha Sapa “The Heart of Everything That Is”

 Join us for the 6th annual Gold Rush Gravel Grinder, to be held on June 9th, 2018! Registration will open up on Dec. 21st, so mark your calendars and get ready to Find It and Grind It!

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!
