Coast Range Gravel Adventure
Tentative dates for 2021 are Oct. 2 - 5
The Coast Range Gravel Adventure is a 4 day bikepacking tour from Corvallis to the Coast and back taking mostly old logging roads.
History and Background
Club members have been riding various road routes to the coast for years, but a route that avoids long stretches of highway has always been elusive. Then in 2016 the C2C Trail was completed from Corvallis to Big Elk Campground. This made the route much easier and the excellent signage they put in allowed us to ride these old logging roads without getting lost. So in October 2018 we ran the first annual CRGA and it was a big success. The 2019 edition was an even bigger success as interest in gravel touring has grown. In 2020 Covid forced us to limit the size of the group, but we expect to back in 2021 with the best ride yet.
