Not a race, the Hunt of the North is a true test of a rider’s gravel cycling abilities. Participants will call upon skills of navigation, proficiency on dirt terrain, a readiness to support other riders, and mindfulness of their surroundings as they become “hunteurs” to collect five pieces of uniquely colored gravel, each in a different location.
It was back in January we began the process of creating our very first kit design with our friends at Eliel Cycling, something that was far more difficult than we anticipated. We wanted a clean look, something with a modern flavor but classic appeal. Originally we wanted to have it ready for our friends by early April for a local mixed-surface event, but the delays in design keep us from that target. The kits wouldn't be ready until late May, and with no event on the calendar to show them at we decided to create our own.
We've created a special event for our friends here in North County and beyond, a hunt that takes gravelers to 5 predetermined locations on dirt throughout the North.
