Hunt of the North - A GRAVELSTOKE ADVENTURE
Back for 2019 we’re bringing back the gravel event that is like none other. The 2nd annual Hunt of the North is planned for June 9, 2019.
Our mission is to create an inclusive event that combines our favorite elements of gravel cycling into one memorable experience. Exploration, navigation, camaraderie and some of the best terrain San Diego has to offer. A gravel hunt that takes participants to 5 predetermined locations on dirt throughout the North.
Riders will be challenged to gather all five pieces of uniquely colored gravel, one at each location. Locations will be revealed 24 hours in advance of the event. Hunters are encouraged to go in teams of two or more and take the route of their choosing. We will again be offering three optional courses of various difficulties, as well as group rides to join for each route. Routes and GPS files will be sent to registered participants. Collect all five pieces of gravel to receive your coveted raffle ticket.
Location: Canyon Bicycles USA, 5600 Avenida Encinas, Carlsbad, CA 92008
Evening June 8: New in 2018 we will be offering a free, open-to-the-public gathering on the evening of June 8. Come hang out with other participants, our sponsors and partner brands. We will also have a few featured talks to learn about some of the latest innovations in the world of gravel.
Morning June 9: There will be coffee available starting at 6:45 AM on the day of the event. Riders will roll out in waves beginning at 8AM.
Post-Ride Festivities: Riders must return to Canyon by 12:30PM to be eligible to receive their raffle tickets. At our Gravel Expo and outdoor beer garden, riders will enjoy tacos and Rouleur beer, included with every entry (21 and over)! We'll also be holding the world famous Hunt of the North Raffle with some amazing prizes!
