On Sunday August 18th 2019 we welcome you to the capital of gravel riding! We have nearly 7000 km of gravel roads in the proximity so this is the perfect opportunity to peek into the gravel bonanza the greater Helsinki area has to offer.
Our long loop is 130 kilometres and includes anything from muddy single-track, to gravel fire roads and short tarmac sections. There are no mountains here but you can still expect to gain more than 2000 meters of elevation during the long loop. You can take this event the way that feels best for you. Some will go hard and aim for the Finnish Gravel Championship. However, we suggest to immerse yourself with the beautiful nature and the best gravel roads there is.
You can also opt for 50km short loop. Team up and support other riders to make this event fun and memorable for all!
