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 two informal rides and some fun social vibes in the Teanaway on June 24 and at Snoqualmie Pass on July 29.

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.

One Day, One Badass Race

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.

Registration opening very soon.

Announcing the Grit Ride

Are you ready for The GRiT? The GRiT EPIC is coming to the Teanaway July 9 & 10, 2022.

With numerous courses to choose from, of varying lengths and elevation gain, you are sure to find the right challenge.

We are going to make this a weekend and party to remember. Sponsored by Dru Bru, with plenty of beer, food, camping, and lots of nearby lodging, you should plan to stay the whole weekend.
