Jersey Gravel Grinder

May 10, 2025 - Bedminster NJ USA

Jersey’s own epic gravel grinder returns!

MEGA (85 Miles), ADVENTURE (55 Miles) & SOUL (28 Miles)

Plus New MEGA XL 125 Mile Route!

Routes feature a perfectly mixed all surface ride including plenty of dirt, gravel and paved roads plus optional singletrack in the Mega route. All routes are 50%+ gravel. We’ll have plenty of Arrow Signs marking the routes, as well as providing free use of our RideWithGPS event account, so you can follow the route with visual and audio cues while riding. We’ll also send out the GPX file if you prefer to follow the route using your own bike computer.

In Grand Fondo style, you’ll be competing for the fastest combined time for specific timed segments rather than complete ride time. There will be signage to let you know when to start going full out and for when you’ve completed each timed segment. You can choose to either ride the whole route all out or chill out and enjoy the scenery and just hammer the competitive timed segments. Mega will have 6 segments, Adventure 4 segments and Soul 2 segments.
