The Oregon Coast Gravel Epic is an endurance event that showcases the raw beauty of ancient Siuslaw National Forests and some of its seriously stout hills.  At 73 miles long with 10,000 ft of climbing the Abomination route more than lives up to its name . While the Son of Abomination is shorter at 37 miles, it is still physically demanding with 5,000 ft of climbing.

Our events feature aid stations with Hammer heed and other hammer products as well as fresh fruit, sandwich makings, Nutella, and other delicious offerings. Bike support is also offered at some aid stations as well as lead and follow vehicles. After the finish line you will be greeted with valet bike parking so that you can enjoy a delicious post ride meal and complimentary Oakshire ale from the beer garden.

The Oregon Coast Gravel Epic is the final event of the Oregon Triple Crown Series of premier and challenging racing and recreational riding events. Complete all three of the Oregon Triple Crown Series and you’ll take home a well-deserved cycling jersey commemorating  your extraordinary efforts.  For more information on the Oregon Triple Crown, go to www.oregontriplecrown.com.

This event is presented by Oregon Coast Bank and is being produced in cooperation with the communities of Waldport and Yachats on the central Oregon Coast and with the support of Travel Oregon, and will highlight the natural beauty of rural Oregon coastal communities. It is Oregon Bicycle Racing Association (OBRA) sanctioned.

 

The Routes

The Abomination route is 73 miles long with 10,000 feet of climbing and the Son of Abomination route is 37 miles with  5,000 ft of climbing. While there is exceedingly little level ground on either route, neither route is technical in a mountain biking sense.

What others Say

Award winning frame builder and top local racer Rob English wrote this about his experience at last year’s event and the Epic was rated one of the 7 toughest gravel events here.

 

Note on OBRA:

This is an Oregon Bicycle Racing Association-sanctioned event.  You must be an OBRA member to participate. One-day OBRA memberships are $2.00 (collected during the online registration process).
