Gorge Gravel Grinder

Name: Gorge Gravel Grinder
Date: April 7, 2019
Event Description:
The Gorge Gravel Grinder is where it all started back in 2010. The Dalles, Oregon were the ride starts and finishes is one of the best spring time riding locals in the Northwest. With moderate marine air flowing off the coast coupled with being located in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountain Range it is your best bet for sun and warm temps March through May each year. Surrounding The Dalles are hundreds of miles of gravel farm roads with little to no motor traffic on them. The course offers great views of the Gorge and surrounding Cascade Mountain peaks as well as an assortment of old school buildings, barns and houses from the late 1800’s. Rolling wheat fields dominate the landscape in all directions blanketing hills in sea of green.
Expect average temps to be in the mid 40’s by race start and up into the mid 60’s by the peak of the day. Gravel sections are well packed, smooth and fast. Spring rains provide good moisture keeping the dust down. No portion of the courses exceeds double digits for climbing or descending. Just a lot of fast rolling hills.
