The Gravel Battle takes riders on a 100km gravel team pursuit across the Pontiac Region of Western Quebec.
The LBS Gravel Battle is a team event, based on the idea that riding communities are shaped greatly around the support towards our Local Bike Shops. Arrive as a team, represent your Local Bike Shop and ride an amazing 100km loop, that is 95% gravel (5km of pavement at most). The course is a mix of rolling farmland, steep ATV doubletrack and some magical gravel paths!
Route: Will be a close variation of this route:LBS Gravel Battle Route (use the route file to plan for water and food needs). Evacuation is self-managed.
Register Here: email firstname.lastname@example.org to enter yourself/team.
Event Start/Finish:Shawville, QC, at the Art Brulant and Impressions Cafe, located HERE
Cost: By Donation, in order to cover insurance and the rest goes to the SPCA and animals that are in need!
Course is NOT MARSHALED and NOT SIGNED & roads are NOT CLOSED TO TRAFFIC (but there's really nobody around anyways)
2. Team captain emails email@example.com to register their team.
3. At least one team member needs to have a GPS with route loaded onto it.
4. Team must complete the ride never spread-out more than 1 kilometer from each other and must finish together.
THE IDEAL BIKE WOULD BE A MONSTER CROSS TYPE RIDE WITH 40 TO 45C TIRES, HOWEVER I'VE RIDDEN THIS ROUTE ON MY CX WITH 35C SCHWALBE G-ONES AND HAD NO ISSUES AND ALSO ON MY FATBIKE TOO!
