Presented by Wichita Falls Streams & Valleys
Gravel Grind start time is 7:05 PM HHH Saturday in Beautiful Downtown Wichita Falls at or near the Wichita Falls Brewery – 701 Indiana Ave, Wichita Falls, TX 76301
Three distances – 25 ish miles, 43 ish miles and 100 K ish
All bikes must have a front and rear light – a real one, not the silly little ones!
We will have reflective signs marking the course – BUT – you MUST have the map from RIDEWITHGPS downloaded – will you get lost without it?? Most likely! We are very lightly marking the turns, but come on.. it’s the country, things happen, signs get stolen by kids, cows and Chupacabras!
The friendly folks from Garmin will be on hand to help you load the maps on your device.
Maps are here –
This is an unsupported ride! You must carry all you need for drinking, eating, changing a flat and any thing else you may need! (OK, we MAY have a few rest stops, but.. come on.. it’s a Gravel ride, Y’all are tough, self sufficient and capable!)
We will have some check points that you will need to have your bib number recorded by the volunteer. We don’t want to leave anyone on the course!
NEW THIS YEAR!! ONLY THE 100 MILE ENDURANCE RIDE COUNTS FOR A CHUPACABRA!
If you ride the Hotter’N Hell 100 MILE endurance ride, AND the Gravel Grind 100 K – you will be a Chupacabra! We will have a very cool award for the first overall female and male for the Chupacabra! All finishers get an awesome patch!
Want more? Are you doing the Triple Threat? Why not add in the 100K Gravel and be a QUADZILLA — That’s right, 4 events in 3 days – Do you feel lucky??
After the event we will have food and beverages. Your bib number will have pull tags for free beer or soda and food, you can buy more it you want.
Grewbie – about 24 miles. Riders must be at least 16 years old. Exceptions may be granted by the Race Director BEFORE the event.
Party Loop – about 43 miles. Riders must be at least 18 years old. Exceptions may be granted by the Race Director BEFORE the event.
