Due to concerns of a recent spike in new COVID-19 cases, we have made the unfortunate decision to postpone the Takelma Gravel Grinder to September 12, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly, and the postponement is a disappointment for everyone involved. We look forward to seeing you on September 12, with registration opening back up on August 1.

About the Ride
Seven Feathers Casino Resort, nestled among tall Douglas firs and pine trees, just off of Interstate 5, at exit 99, in Canyonville, Oregon, is the beginning of the Takelma Gravel Grinder. Riders will choose between the 30-mile Decaf & 57-mile Bold routes. The ride begins by taking riders through the doors of the casino before rolling towards the town of Canyonville and onto rural, Tiller Trail Highway. Passing farm and ranch landscapes along the South Umpqua River, soon you’re into the gravel experience with the first climb of the ride. A challenging 1.3 mile KMO climbing effort with 9% average gain, then cresting to a spectacular valley view of Days Creek. During the ride, aid stations with electrolyte drinks and food will be provided, as well as SAG vehicles.
The 15-mile mark will be the turn-around for our Decaf riders, as the Bold riders continue on towards Chief Miwaleta Park and along the scenic view of Galesville Reservoir. We then return to Seven Feathers Casino Resort to relax at the Bites, Blues & Brews Festival, enjoying food and beverage from the Seven Feathers Food Truck, compliments of the race organizers.
We are proud to be able to offer the Takelma Gravel Grinder on
