Born out of the rugged west of Ireland, Galway Bay Cycling Club will host a Galway Gravel Grinder on August 27th in and around the Galway Wind Park on the outskirts of the West of the City of the Tribes.
The event will offer a little bit of everything Ireland has to offer for a truly unique gravel cycling adventure. Forest roads, farm roads, boreen roads, single track and a whole bunch of good ‘ole gravel!
The Galway Gravel Grinder will start in the village of Moycullen where a gentle, neutral rolling start will quickly give way to a classics-like introduction to Irish boreen and gravel sectors.
After 30 kilometers of classics style terrain, the route turns into the Galway Wind Park where gravel roads, fun climbs and the gorgeous terrain and views of Connemara await.
There are three distances to choose from on the day
- Epic – 125k
- Crush – 100k
- Craic – 65k
The Entry Fee of €55 includes food and water at feed stations, event t-shirt, finishing prize, post-ride burger and beer, and other swag. Non-Cycling Ireland (CI) members will be required to purchase a one-day CI license for €10.
