Additional Information

Critical Rider Information

Gravelanche is an endurance bicycle ride that subjects the participants to the inherent and considerable risks normally associated with a continuous gravel cycling event. The considerable length of the ride on the roads and back country trails involves substantial risk to all participants that could result in significant injury and death. The nature of this relay means that riders will face substantial physical challenge, endure long periods out of range of food or water and any contact with cell service or other services. All riders must rely on their own capabilities to complete and endure this event and each rider is required to be self-sufficient during the entire event. There should be no support expected from the event organizers.

All riders are reminded that they are responsible for their own safety at all times. Riders will experience rough terrain that will subject the riders to wildlife, natural elements and dangers, vehicles, weather and all other elements that create dangerous conditions for riders. Riders are encouraged to review the route, research the terrain and types of riding involved and understand the true nature of the event in order to accept the significance of what they will experience. Riders are accepting that the very essence and nature of the ride involves these significant risks and these challenges form the basis for each riders desire to participate.
