Big Scrub Gravel Buzz

February 24 2018
Ocala, Florida, USA

The Inaugural Big Scrub Gravel Buzz ventures into the world’s largest contiguous sand pine scrub. Riders will experience paved, chipseal, lime rock, grass, red dirt roads, and a bit of gravel here and there as they pass by the Ocklawaha River, wet prairies, swamps, and dense hammocks of palms, long-leaf pine and live oaks.

Course:
The 56 mile, “Hawg Leg”, and the 90 mile, “Whole Hawg” follow the same route for the first 26 miles and the final 24 miles.

Post Ride:
Participants, their friends and families are invited to hang out and socialize at Infinite Ale Works. Beer + bikes + food + friends and family = awesome!

Reminder:
This is a charity ride, and not a race. An “Ocala World Champion Jersey” will be awarded to the first finishers, Male and Female on the Whole Hawg route only.

Both routes feature pavement, lime rock, grass, dirt roads, bumps, sand, beautiful scenery, and wild animals. Most of these roads are low traffic.

Whether you like to ride fast or enjoy the scenery, come along and take in the sights of the Ocala National Forest and its surroundings; Gravel Style!

This event is 100% unsupported, you are responsible for your own welfare. Both routes pass a convenience store at 23 miles and the Whole Hog route passes a second store at the 41.5 mile mark. Please be proficient in changing a flat tire, and have a contact for a ride home should you experience a ride ending mechanical issue.

THE COURSE IS OPEN TO TRAFFIC. PLEASE RESPECT ALL RULES OF THE ROAD.
