Free for Club Spinistry Members! The signup fee will be applied to a club membership for non members. We will be staging from the amazing 4R Ranch Vineyards and Winery. This will be mostly a brand new route heading west towards Nocona and then south. A few of our members tried this route on a rainy weekend and raved about it. We are excited to show this one off!
We will utilize a fantastic network of gravel/dirt roads in and around Muenster, St.Jo and Nocona for riders to enjoy this unique slice of Texas. Roads will be a combination of all weather gravel roads, back country paved roads as well as some short stretches of FM Roads/Highways. This is a timed Club ride for training purposes only. There is no registration fee and there will NOT be any awards beyond pride and glory.
North Texas gravel greatness for everyone! Routes from 30 to 200+ miles. 200+ Mile route includes two separate loops of the same course (forwards then backwards). Each loop begins and ends at the main staging area. The 200 mile route is self navigated and self supported so GPS is required. Outside support is allowed at specified points along the route but not on other parts of the course. No bike swaps allowed.
100 Mile route is a loop shared with the 200 mile riders. This route is also considered self navigated and self supported.
70ish mile route will be marked but we still recommend GPS backup for navigation purposes.
50K route will be marked, GPS backup navigation suggested.
These routes are not appropriate for traditional "road bikes". Gravel/Adventure bikes, cyclocross and hardtail mountain bikes are ideal. Hybrids without fenders will work for the shorter routes as well. Helmets are required and rear lights are highly recommended for safety purposes. There are short stretches on high speed Farm to Market roads but the vast majority of the routes are on nearly deserted county roads.
The course is marked but this should still be considered a self supported event without SAG vehicles. GPS backup is highly suggested. Riders can receive support at specified points along the route but will be disqualified if they receive on course support beyond other riders outside of those points.
For safety and insurance purposes all riders must wear a helmet and operate their bicycles under their own power. No motorized assistance is allowed.
