From the Promoter:
The Lion Gravel Challenge. Come challenge yourself on an amazing route less than 90 minutes from Seattle.
Route: 115 miles that includes over 13,000 feet of elevation gain – bring your granny gears.
The course will provide riders a massive heaping of some very mountainous and remote areas in Central Washington. Most of the route is primitive Forest Service “roads”. There will be five aid stations at roughly miles 19, 36, 60, 75, and 95. These will also serve as emergency bail out points. We will not have support vehicles roaming the course, roads conditions simply won’t allow for it. All riders are expected to be able to extract themselves from the route.
