The Solstice Gravel Grinder is in its fourth year as a premier grassroots Nebraska gravel grinder that starts and ends in Beatrice NE on June 20th, 2020. This ride will journey through the communities of Holmesville, Barneston, Odell, Steele City, Endicott, Diller, and Beatrice.
The riders will experience all kinds of gravel roads from flat to hilly and super hilly. And just because we know you want adventure, we will even throw in a few MMR’s. The “Solstice 100” field will be limited to 125 riders for the Hundy. We will also be offering a couple of shorter route options. A 50+ mile gravel grinder, called “Solar Fiddy”, and it will be limited to 75 riders total. And new this year, we will be offering a shorter 50K (31 miles) route, “The Kindler” for those that want to experience gravel for the first time. It will follow some of the same roads as the other routes, and also mix in a bit of the newly completed Chief Standing Bear Trail. It will be limited to 50 riders.
