Event's DetailsRiotGRRRavel is a free unsupported 20 or 33 mile road race in near Hastings, MN that is a fun, accessible ride that is woman & family friendly.
The Skelton Thomas family, friends and volunteers organized the first Riotgrrravel in 2014 to introduce more women to gravel bike racing without having to race in a 100 mile course with a large percentage of male participants. Each year it has continued to grow, and we are grateful for the Skelton Thomas's leadership in organizing the event from 2014–16.
Female, trans*, and gender non-conforming riders will receive priority in registration as this event is designed to support them. We encourage cisgender men who wish to participate to ride with a female, trans, gender non-conforming rider, or a family member (any gender) under 18. Alternatively, men who wish to support the event may choose to volunteer (contact Victoria at [email protected] to volunteer).
The start and finish line will be at the Hastings Hope Lutheran Church at 16898 Michael Ave Hastings, MN. We are grateful for the support and gracious hospitality of Hope Lutheran Church and excited to embark on our fifth year of collaborating with them.
Ride whatever kind of bike you want or have … Road bike, Mountain Bike, Cross Bike, Tandem, Single/Fixed, Snow Bike, or Unicycle.
The course is not closed to traffic and does not have an escort. Also the course will not be marked so cue cards must be used for navigation. This is an entirely self supported event so pack what you need and what you pack in, pack out.
