This is an unsupported ride! You must carry all you need for drinking, eating, changing a flat and anything else you may need! (OK, we MAY have a couple rest stops)  but.. come on.. it’s a Gravel ride, y’all are tough, self-sufficient and capable!)

All routes close at 1 AM, we will sweep the routes, but if you choose to stay out past 1 AM, you are ON YOUR OWN.

Awards for the Gravel events – everyone gets an awesome finisher patch.  You will get tickets for free beer (from WF Brewing Co) or soda and sandwich.

Please email David Coleman, the Grava del Fuego Race Director at [email protected] to request an exemption or ask any questions you may have. All gravel riders under 18 will also require a signed waiver from a parent or legal guardian to ride any of three routes.
