Solstice Gravel Grinder

June 17, 2023

The Solstice Gravel Grinder is coming on its 7th year, starting as a grassroots event and gaining popularity yearly.   The ride starts and ends in Beatrice, Nebraska, and journeys through the communities of Holmesville, Barneston, Odell, Steele City, Endicott, Diller, and the South East Nebraska region. Riders experience all kinds of gravel roads, from flat to hilly and super hilly.  The Solstice 100 (The Hundy) is the original distance, and the field is limited to 150 riders. There are several shorter routes. The 50+ mile gravel grinder is called the Solar Fiddy, limited to 125 riders. And the 50K Kindler (31 miles) returns and will follow many of the same roads as the other routes and mix in miles on the newly completed Chief Standing Bear Trail.  The Hundy Team Relay is also offered, which is a co-ed event in which you are required to have at least one female on your team. This is a limited field event; registration opens annually in late December to claim your spot.

Remember that this is a self-supported event, so you’ll need to bring enough supplies to get you through the day.  There are several checkpoints, but only water and limited SAG support.  Fear not; there are ample stop opportunities through the many small towns the ride passes.
