Gorge Gravel Grinder

Gorge Gravel is the perfect early spring event perfect for beginner riders and seasoned gravel gurus! Test your fitness coming out of the winter with beautiful views, pure gravel camaraderie, and a pre and post-ride celebration based in Oregon’s gem of gravel, Dufur. The course offers great views of the Gorge and surrounding Cascade Mountain peaks as well as an assortment of old school buildings, barns, and houses from the late 1800’s. Rolling bright green wheat fields dominate the landscape in all directions.


Expect average temps to be in the mid 40’s by race start and up into the mid 60’s by the peak of the day. Gravel sections are well packed, smooth and fast. Spring rains provide good moisture keeping the dust down. No portion of the courses exceeds double digits for climbing or descending. Just a lot of fast rolling hills.

Ride it or race it, it’s up to you!
