Hello GRiT community, We are very sad to announce that GRiT 2023 is canceled and refunds are being issued. Details below.
We are planning two informal rides and some fun social vibes in the Teanaway on June 24 and at Snoqualmie Pass on July 29.
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.
The Department of Natural Resources is requiring us to have you sign their waiver. Please print, sign and bring to registration this weekend. We will have copies for you to sign, but if you do so in advance you might get an extra hug.
Hey, we are getting very close to opening registration for the GRiT Epic, and in the meantime we wanted to share some changes.
We’ve cut this down to one day, one race, on Sunday. You can ride your gravel bike or mountain bike on this unrelenting, rugged course. We are calling this Teanaway Adventure Gravel.
We’ve cut the XC race that we had planned to start out of Roslyn on Saturday. Lining up all these permits was giving Erik grey hair (…well, Erik has no hair… maybe it’s aggravating his gout). The Sunday ride offers a great challenge for both gravel riders and mountain bikers alike. Bring your gravel bike or your mountain bike for a taste of Teanaway Adventure Gravel.
