Oregon Coast Gravel Epic

August 29 2020
Waldport, Oregon, USA

Welcome to the Oregon Coast Gravel EPIC! Moved because of Covid-19 and to celebrate the 4th of July!

It's remote, beautiful and it's mountainous with a sustained 50/50 gravel effort deep in the Siuslaw National Forest. This stand alone event also is the kick off to 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.

The Oregon Coast Gravel Epic is a gravel cycling event that features the sustained climbs found deep in the coastal mountains of the Siuslaw National Forest.

The Abomination route is 60 miles long with 6,300 ft of climbing. While the Son of Abomination is shorter at 37 miles, it has a chest-thumping 4,000 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 Wheels, 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 6300 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
