We are excited to announce the expansion of Gravel Grinder to a three ride series called the Oregon Gravel Grinder. We have selected the most scenic, challenging, and quality roads to be found in the state of Oregon. Many are iconic and are included as part of Oregon Scenic Bikeways. These are signature roads that are unique and that you will find no were else.   Each ride comes complete with chip timing that allows for immediate results posted onsite and online as well as interim timing points and competitions along the way. Well stocked aid stations, porta potties and well signed courses mean that you can focus completely on the task of finishing strong. Each has a post event party were riders can bask in their accomplishment and trade stories with friends and fellow riders of their experience along the way.   Ready for the Grinder Challenge?   Then pick one of these three epic events or better yet do all three and ride at the next level!
