From the Promoter:
Across the red cinder roads of Oregon’s remote high desert country, over the dramatic Cascade Mountains, through dank moss-covered rainforests and along historic wagon trails where settlers once tested their grit on the journey west, the 2019 Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder promises nothing less than the adventure of a lifetime.
The event, set for June 19-23, 2019, is the creation of Breakaway Promotions, one of the country’s most seasoned cycling production companies. It will start and finish in the character-rich saddle town of Sisters and will pass through 365 miles of Oregon’s most scenic and applause-worthy gravel roads, with fully-supported fireside campouts and entertainment to rest and refuel each night.
True to its name, the Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder will have a decidedly-playful western theme- think Daniel Boone hats and wagon wheel medals, covered wagon aid stations, boot-stomping ale and entertainment at night and strong cowboy coffee in the morning. Each stage will even have a shorter “Settler Route” for folks to saddle sore for the full ride and want to make it to camp before the biscuits start burning.
