Oregon Coast Gravel Epic
May 4, 2019
The Oregon Coast Gravel Epic is an Gravel Grinder consisting of 50% pure logging roads that are unpaved and the other 50% smooth pavement left over from decades of active logging that still exists to this day.
This endurance event showcases the raw beauty of ancient Siuslaw National Forests and some of its seriously stout hills. At 60 miles long with 6677 ft of climbing the Abomination route more than lives up to its name and will take 3.5-7hrs for most.
The Son of Abomination is shorter at 37 miles, it is still physically demanding with 3,740 ft of climbing and 3-4 hrs of riding and just as amazing without quite as many hills.
Our events feature aid stations with Tailwind Nutrition on course and a host of other goodies for a great day on a gravel bike or hard tail MTB!
Sandwich makings, Nutella, and other delicious offerings at each aid station. Bike support is also offered at some aid stations as well as lead and follow vehicles. After the finish line, you will be greeted with valet bike parking so that you can enjoy a delicious post-ride meal and complimentary beverages inside or outside after your effort with friends.
The Oregon Coast Gravel Epic is the kickoff event of the Oregon Triple Crown Series of premier, and challenging events each May. Do one or do them all with the Oregon Triple Crown Pass that gives you 15% off this event if you sign up for the pass prior to this event.
