"America's 4th Hardest, Cow-Themed Gravel Ride" stampedes once again into the stunning Paso Robles wine region on California's Central Coast. This unique event brings out the full community to celebrate getting dusty in one of most beautiful places to ride a bike.

Now in its third year, the Bovine continues to grow in its reputation as being the most seriously unserious gravel event. It's mostly a fun mosey-about ride that is punctuated with multiple, full-gas, timed segments. This event measures success in finish line smiles... and it earns lots of those. 

Experience for yourself the ride that Levi Leipheimer calls "Totally SICK!!!" and that Alison Tetrick says "Brings out the absolute best in people!" 

Bring your friends and family, enjoy the ride, and make a weekend of it. Just don't take yourself too seriously. We are a truly fun-forward Herd.
