Oct 4-5-6, 2013
Join us for 3 Days of Gravel Grinding fun and adventure. Expo area. Test rides. Group rides. Camping. Fun and camaraderie on the hundreds of miles of dirt roads of central PA.
Please check out the different pages on this site to learn more about what we have in store (check out the menu in the drop down above). We are continuing to tweak the event and adding more rides and fun so keep checking back.
The Great Gravel Gathering is a festival for all things awesome about riding bikes through hundreds of miles of gravel, dirt, closed roads and some singletrack if you’re so inclined.
We’re going to camp and ride and ride and ride and have some beers. We’re creating maps and rides for you to enjoy that range throughout the massive Bald Eagle State Forest and into the neighboring Rothrock State Forest in central PA. One could travel from Altoona to Williamsport, PA via the gravel roads in these forests – perhaps some of you will!
This is not a rassin’ weekend. This is to get together and celebrate the fun of taking bikes on dirt roads. We’re working on some fun events that will offer some prizes and some more good reasons to go explore the reaches of this beautiful forest. We have more than $1000 worth of great prizes from partners like Salsa Cycles, Endura Clothing, Q-Outdoor, Vargo Outdoors and of course Freeze Thaw is kicking in too.
