Oregon Coast Gravel Epic

May 04 2019
Waldport, Oregon, USA

Welcome to the Oregon Coast Gravel EPIC! 

It's remote, it's mountainous, it's an ass kicker if you push to hard, and it's the kick off of the Oregon Triple Crown Series. Complete all three of the Oregon Triple Crown Series events and you’ll be honored with an exclusive Pactimo finisher's jersey and recognition of your extraordinary efforts in the Epic or Marathon series. 

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 The Abomination route is 60 miles long with 6,500 ft of climbing. While the Son of Abomination is shorter at 37 miles, it has a chest-thumping 4,500 ft of climbing.

This event is is produced in cooperation with the communities of Waldport and Yachats on the central Oregon Coast and with the support of Rolf Prima, Co-Motion Cycles, Oregon Coast Visitors Association, and number of other outstanding sponsors, and will highlight the natural beauty of rural Oregon coastal communities.  

The Routes

The Abomination is 60 miles long with 6500 feet of climbing and the Son of Abomination is 37 miles with 4000 ft of climbing. While there is exceedingly little level ground on either route, neither route is technical in a mountain biking sense. 60% Road and 40% Gravel
