Gravel Pace Groups for new Riders

Check out the Gravel Pace Groups on race day, as well as seminars we will be offering on Saturday afternoon on tire pressure and repair, basic road side mechanics, and race nutrition.  Pace Groups have been created to help new and beginner riders have a great experience by removing the fear of being alone on the course. 

Six pace groups will be available for all rider levels, with four groups for the 56-mile Small Grinder and two for the 67-mile Medium Grinder. Each group will be headed by an experienced Ride Leader, organizing and keeping the pace, while hand-picked Ambassadors will be within the pack cheering riders on and celebrating with every accomplishment. 

Ride Leaders and Ambassadors will offer guidance, course knowledge, and be able to support the pace group throughout the course.

You can RSVP for your ride group through the registration page here by adding on the Pace Group RSVP to your registration.
