Solstice Gravel Grinder
June 19 - August 27
The Solstice Gravel Grinder is a top Mid-West Gravel event, setting of from Beatrice Nebraska. The Solstice Gravel Grinder is in its fourth year as a premier grassroots Nebraska gravel grinder that starts and ends in Beatrice NE on June 20th, 2020. This ride will journey through the communities of Holmesville, Barneston, Odell, Steele City, Endicott, Diller, and Beatrice. The riders will experience all kinds of gravel roads from flat to hilly and super hilly. And just because we know you want adventure, we will even throw in a few MMR’s. The “Solstice 100” field will be limited to 125 riders for the Hundy. We will also be offering a couple of shorter route options. A 50+ mile gravel grinder, called “Solar Fiddy”, and it will be limited to 75 riders total. And new this year, we will be offering a shorter 50K (31 miles) route, “The Kindler” for those that want to experience gravel for the first time. It will follow some of the same roads as the other routes, and also mix in a bit of the newly completed Chief Standing Bear Trail. It will be limited to 50 riders.
This is a fully self supported race with limited rest stops with limited food and beverage so riders have to be prepared to aid their own ride.
The Solstice Gravel Grinder is already fully booked for 2020, and with limited spots due to COVID it filled extremely quickly so be prepared for 2021 sign ups! A top US gravel event, the Solstice Gravel Grinder is worth a sign up for a tough midwest gravel event.
