The Heartbreaker is an event that traverses some of Gainesville’s most beautiful roads. Featuring Live Oak canopies adorned with Spanish moss, dirt, limerock and paved roads, this ride has it all.

We invite RIDERS OF ALL ABILITIES for this fun day of cycling, off the beaten track. It is held in conjunction with the Gainesville Cycling Club and GravelCyclist.com

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT BICYCLE CHOICE
Cyclocross or Mountain bikes are recommended for both rides. The road surfaces are NOT road bike friendly, please leave your road bike at home. Those on Mountain bikes, it is recommended you you fit a faster rolling tire, that rolls well on pavement. Heavy, offroad specific tires with lots of knobs will really hurt your speed on the paved sectors.

POST RIDE:
Participants, their friends and families are invited to hang out and socialize at One Love Cafe. Beer + bikes + food + friends and family = awesome!

RIDE ROUTES:
Coming soonish.

Both routes depart One Love Cafe at approximately 10:45am. We will stick together as a group and roll out of town.

NOTE: As is the nature of gravel cycling, these ROUTES ARE NOT MARKED. Please utilize the above maps for your navigational needs. Cue sheets can be generated the map links, but they are not always trustworthy. If you have a problem with an unmarked course, please stay home.

The event is 100% unsupported, you are responsible for your own welfare. Please be proficient in changing a flat tire, and have a contact for a ride home should you experience a ride ending mechanical issue. Gravel Cyclist LLC and the Gainesville Cycling Club are not responsible for you in any way - non-club members of the GCC will be required to sign a waiver at this ride.

THE COURSE IS OPEN TO TRAFFIC. PLEASE RESPECT ALL RULES OF THE ROAD. DON'T BE THAT PERSON.
