From the Promoter:
The Cascade Gravel Grinder is one of the most scenic and diverse gravel events in the country. Located in Bend, Oregon the event will provide three days of amazing rides through the Central Oregon high desert and Cascade Mountain Range. Bend is home to thousands of miles of remote gravel roads were deer outnumber cars 10 to 1. All three days of riding offer different scenery and challenges. April is a great time of year for experiencing the beauty of Central Oregon. The air is clear, the mountains still gleam with white snow and roads have minimal dust factor. Add to that great lodging rates and you have the perfect opportunity to enjoy Bend.
Average daily temps range between 50-70 degrees with temperatures dipping slightly on Sunday as you head up into the Cascade Mountain range. The team at Breakaway Promotions looks forward to offering outstanding support both during your ride and after with great aid stations, mechanical support, food and beverages.
The Cascade Gravel Grinder is an omnium formatted event. This allows riders to race/ride one, two or all three days. Prizes and scoring will be set up for each day’s ride. Prize money and overall winner’s jerseys will be given to the overall omnium winners.
