From the Promoter:

Gravel ConspiracyThree Days of Gravel Stage Racing along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Its that time again. Mark your calendars for September 9th through the 11th, 2016.

Registration for the 6th Gravel Conspiracy is open (click on the registration link HERE).

The tentative route (I am finalizing the route next weekend) will be to start from around Silver Bay and ride to Ely via double track, dirt roads, and gravel.
Second day will see us on a big loop west of Ely, and then returning to town for a 2nd night. This really simplifies the logistics.
The last day will have us rolling back to Silver Bay.

As always, I take care of the transportation logistics of getting your stuff from the start to your lodging, but if you want to bikepack it, RESPECT!

Your gear gets hauled in a box truck to each night’s destination. You can stay in posh accommodations each night or you can dirtbag it the whole trip (respect). Entirely self supported out on course. Seriously, no one will come for you.

Marginal directions and Cue sheets are par for the course. Many roads unmarked. Route is mind blowing.

Cost: Free*.

Winner gets a pat on the back.

* There is a cost for the bus ticket to get to the border(~$45) , but there is no cost to participate in the event.
