Welcome to the Oregon Gravel Grinder Series!
3 Epic Rides - 3 Regions of Oregon
We are excited to present the Oregon Gravel Grinder series in 2019. This year we will have three epic rides. The 1-day Gorge Gravel Grinder in The Dalles, the 3-day Cascade Gravel Grinder in Bend, and the 5-day Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder that will take riders throughout the Cascade Mountains and Central Oregon. We have selected the most scenic, challenging, and quality roads to be found in the state of Oregon. Many are iconic and historical roads. These are signature roads are unique have little to no traffic, and are incredibly scenic.
Each ride comes complete with chip timing and awards, well stocked aid stations, and well signed courses mean that you can focus completely on the task of finishing strong.
Each ride has a post event party where riders can bask in their accomplishment and trade stories with friends and fellow riders of their experience along the way. The Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder provides complete logistical support for the 5-day point to point ride as well as unbelievable food and entertainment. Ready for the Grinder Challenge? Then pick one of these three epic rides or better yet do all of them and ride at the next level!
