The GRiT Teanaway 2023 is Canceled

Hello GRiT community,
We are very sad to announce that GRiT 2023 is canceled and refunds are being issued. Details below.

We are planning an informal ride and some fun social vibes in the Teanaway on 6/24 instead.

We are working on a new, epic gravel event in late July or early August. Stay tuned. 

What happened?

When we opened registration in December for the GRiT Teanaway we didn’t expect any problems given that we were doing the same course with the same plans as last year. The most important permit we were seeking (covering key sections of the course) was with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) going through the Teanaway Community Forest (TCF). We worked all winter to secure the permit but ultimately were turned down by the DNR.

We are disappointed and we are very sorry for this cancelation. We are hopeful that the GRiT Teanaway will return next year. If you have inroads with the DNR and would like to help, please let us know.

What’s happening in Cle Elum the weekend of 6/24? 

We are leading an informal ride in the Teanaway on 6/24 and are planning some social events to make sure you can connect with your people. 

  • The ride starts at 9am from Dru Bru in Cle Elum 
  • Post-ride beers and pizza at Dru Bru
  • This is a no-cost, informal event. No timing or registration, just fun in the Teanaway.
  • More details will be posted on in early June

We are hoping to create a new gravel event

We are working on a new, epic adventure for you in late July or early August. We will update everyone as things progress.  Join our mailing list or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to stay abreast of the latest.
