An adventure gravel ride in Cle Elum, Washington, exploring the Teanaway Wilderness.

The GRiT Epic.

The GRiT Epic is an adventure gravel ride on forest roads & singletrack in the Teanaway Wilderness.

Adventure Gravel is what we are calling this challenging ride. Adventure Gravel? Huh?! Gravel riding meet mountain biking. Brutal climbs, tough descents, a bit of single track on a hearty mix of surfaces where your biggest decision is whether to ride your gravel bike on this beast or your hard-tail mountain bike.

We’re not sure if the GRiT is the Leadville of Gravel or the Unbound of mountain biking. One thing we are sure of is that it’s pure Pacific Northwest badassness and will make you question why you signed up.

Ever heard of the Teanaway? We’ll take you through this pristine Pacific Northwest jewel where you’ll want to stop at every viewpoint to take it all in.

We’ve created a brand-new course in this awesome wilderness where you won’t see anyone except your fellow riders, and perhaps you’ll bump into Sasquatch.

The views are magnificent. The forest deep and dark. The air pure.

“Just a quick note to thank you and the team that put together the GRiT routes. I rode the L course yesterday and it was among the best I’ve ever ridden. I’ve been letting everyone know how much I like it. Cheers!”

Local rider Nikos Mills

The ride starts and finishes at the Dru Bru brewery in Cle Elum, where you’ll find free beer at the finish to help numb the pain.

Plan to stay for the whole weekend. You can camp or stay nearby–there are lots of local lodging, food, and shopping options in Cle Elum, Roslyn or Suncadia.

Come join us for The GRiT on July 10 and do some soul searching in the heart of the Cascade mountains.

Registration closes at 9pm on Saturday July 9.
