Traverse deep swaths of pine forests, classic Amish farm country, and picturesque Wisconsin waterways on beautiful gravel roads through Eau Claire and Clark County lands.
Whether you come for a race or a ride, and no matter what bike, you’ll enjoy a gravel party done right.
Our signature mass starting line is on a hidden, historic bridge over the dam waterfall of Coon Fork Lake. Pass through the event starting gate and hear the roaring water as you depart on your adventure, leaving the first lake behind and heading deep into protected county forest lands littered with streams, wildlife, and woods.
Plan a party stop at the Halfway Hang beach pavilion at Rock Dam Lake. Enjoy some music and maybe even go for a quick swim, with private changing and restrooms right on site. Sponsors will be on hand with free snacks and bottle refills, plus mechanical support from our lead bike shop partner Compass Bike Lab. It’s a fun scene where all routes converge together.
On your approach to the beachside finish line (new in 2024!), you’ll traverse rolling, wooded XC ski double track along the backwaters of Coon Fork Lake. Ultimately riders clear the finish gate to be dumped directly into the after party w/ music, food, beer from our partner Bloomer Brewing, swimming, a playground & more. Invite friends or family to join you there!
