OREGON COAST GRAVEL EPIC BIKE RACE
The Oregon Coast Gravel Epic offers riders seeking an unvarnished challenge a full day of adventure in the Siuslaw National Forest on the central Oregon Coast. This event is being produced in cooperation with the cities of Waldport and Yachats with support from Travel Oregon. The ride showcases the raw beauty of ancient Siuslaw National Forest scenery and rural coastal communities. This is one of the crown jewels of the Oregon Triple Crown Series of premier and challenging racing and recreational riding events.
The Abomination is 73 miles with 10,000ft of climbing and the Son of Abomination is 37 mi and 5,000 ft of climbing. While there is exceedingly little level ground on either route, neither route is technical in a mountain biking sense. The road surface is roughly 75% packed forest service gravel roads, 1% fist sized gravel and 24% paved.
Venue: 34th & Crestline Dr. Waldport
