We are excited for the 2024 Cascade Gravel Race/Ride! Team Breakaway is mixing it up for next year to keep things fresh and exciting for all who participate. The biggest change is we will be going from a 3-day stage race to one epic day of racing. This decision was made in order to build upon our Three Creeks course which has been the favored route. Don’t think for a second we are getting soft.
GRAVEL GREATNESS IN THE CASCADES
The Cascade Gravel Grinder is one of the most scenic and diverse gravel events in the country. Located in Sisters, Oregon the event will provide an amazing ride through the Central Oregon high desert and Cascade Mountain Range.
The Cascade Gravel Grinder gives riders a spectacular Sunday ride with three different ride options.
44 - 94 Miles
3,500-8,600 Feet Elevation
HIGH DESERT & REMOTE GRAVEL ROADS
Average daily temps range between 50-70 degrees with temperatures dipping slightly on Sunday’s course as you ride up to higher elevations in the Cascade Mountain range. The Breakaway Team looks forward to offering outstanding support during your ride at well-stocked aid stations, mechanical support on the course, and after your ride at the Sunday Celebration in Sisters.
The Bend area is home to thousands of miles of remote gravel roads, where deer outnumber cars 10 to 1. June is a great time of year for experiencing the beauty of Central Oregon. The air is clear, the mountains still gleam with white snow and roads have minimal dust factor. Add to that great lodging rates and you have the perfect opportunity to enjoy Bend.
We couldn't do it without these great sponsors. Please thank them for their support and let them know you are a part of this event!
