Fernie Gravel Grind
The Fernie Gravel Grind is a weekend long gravel cycling experience located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, home to some of the best gravel riding that Canada has to offer. Over the course of the weekend, riders will race up picturesque mountain roads, experience the history-rich town of Fernie, British Columbia, and connect with a growing community of Canadian gravel cyclists while enjoying our venue located in the downtown core. Following our mission, Anything Goes With Gravel, the race itself is open to anyone and everyone, and offers multiple distances, race categories and fun activities for the whole family, all weekend long.
Registration opens March 1st.
