Ride the Quietest Gravel and Roads at the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic

The Siuslaw National Forest has some of quietest roads that cyclists will ever encounter – a well-kept secret, a cyclist’s paradise

Taking place on May 4, 2019, from Waldport the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic is a gravel cycling endurance event that features the seriously stout climbs found deep in the coastal mountains of the Siuslaw National Forest.

Ride the Quietest Gravel and Roads at the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic

A mix of pure logging roads and smooth pavement, this challenging Gravel Grinder showcases the raw beauty of ancient Siuslaw National Forests and the stunning Oregon coastline communities and offers two routes.

The Abomination route is 60 miles long with 6,800 ft of climbing, while the Son of Abomination is shorter at 37 miles, it has a chest-thumping 3,800 ft of climbing, consisting of 50% pure logging roads that are unpaved and the other 50% smooth pavement left over from decades of active logging that still exists to this day.

While there is exceedingly little level ground on either route, neither route is technical so a Gravel, Cross, Mountain or a even a Road bike with wider tyres will do.

Plenty of Camping and places to stay in either Waldport or 15 minutes away in Yachats. Make sure to visit Hilltop Bistro in Waldport for some amazing food and or in Yachats at Yachats Brewing, the official packet pick-up.

Aid Station Distances are 14, and 34 and 44 for the Abomination and 14 and 27 for the Son of Abomination. On course Fuel provided by Tailwind Nutrition. Ditch the Bars and Gels!

Post-event festivities inside and outside the Waldport Community Center with food provided and beverages. Podium Awards for top 3 in 5 year age groups!
