Gravel Worlds 2018

The 2018 Gravel Worlds promises an unparalleled challenge for the gravel enthusiast.

World Championship jerseys are up for grabs in the following categories: Open Men, Women Open, Master Men (50+), Master Women (40+), Single Speed Men, Single Speed Women, Tandem, Fatbike/Cargo Bike/Recumbent Men, Fatbike/Cargo Bike/Recumbent Women

START TIME: 6:00am

BACK FOR 2018! Not wanting to walk the full plank? Plunderous none-the-less, our shortened course will test the mettle and give no quarter. We are plotting a (roughly) 75 mile voyage with checkpoints and high-seas refueling opportunities. This is not a championship event, the only prizes available are high fives, bragging rights, and a pat on the back. Two categories only: Open Men and Open Women.

START TIME: 7:00am
