Best Gravel Cycling Races Northwest 2024

The team at Strambecco is thrilled to present our curated list of the Best Gravel Cycling Events in the Northwest for 2024. Our selection is based on a comprehensive evaluation of various factors, including reputation, route quality, location, rider feedback, and the overall uniqueness of each event. The Northwest offers some of the most spectacular landscapes for gravel cycling enthusiasts, covering a diverse range of terrains across Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Northern California. There's something for every adventurer, from agricultural plains and temperate rainforests to semi-arid deserts, towering mountain ranges, and enormous canyons (including the deepest in North America).

If you're looking for the crème de la crème of gravel cycling events, those that you simply must experience at least once, we have a few standout recommendations. Leading the pack is the Belgian Waffle Ride British Columbia held in the Spring. In only its second year, BWR BC has already earned its status as a classic. As part of the renowned Belgian Waffle Ride Series, this event is connected to one of North America's pinnacle gravel events, the Belgian Waffle Ride California.


Other must-ride events include the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic in April, offering stunning coastal views and challenging terrain, and the USAL Hopper: Lost Coast in October, which promises a rugged adventure through one of the most remote coastal regions.
