Who Are We?
Four motivated enthusiasts who want to bring the cycling community together through our one-day gravel cycling event, Big Red.
Big Red runs along the Rouge River capturing untapped landscapes for miles at a time. From Lost River, to Grenville up to Huberdeau, Big Red will challenge all cyclists who are looking for new experiences outside of traditional road cycling.
From beginner cyclists to bike fanatics, beautiful landscapes and an après-ride party, gravel cycling is a community event.
In numbers, the event has seen continuous growth since it started.
Aside from a variety of crushed rock along the ride, the event oﬀers a variety of mixed gravel, dirt and mud.
Every year we hold a surprise called the Oasis; a technical stretch making or breaking the momentum of participants as they keep pushing through until the ﬁnish.
In addition, on the day of the event, anyone willing to measure out their climbing technique will face a strategically positioned and now traditional KOM (King of the Mountain) hill climb challenge.
On the day of the event:
- Choice of 60km or 130km course with timing
- Feed stations and limited on-course support
- Catered post-ride BBQ for all participants
- Running water and facilities at start/ﬁnish
Camping is part of the event’s DNA and we strive to oﬀer it every year. Participants are encouraged to stay on site before and after the event.
