All gravel events in Ireland are affected by the resent blanket ban by Coillte.
As per the  Galway Gravel Grinder statement, our events in April will be affected too.
We were to host 3 events over long distance, but now this can’t happen.
Luckily, we at Raceface events have one route with enough gravel to make it an EPIC.
We are working with Cycling Ireland, so at this time, it’s more important than ever that we host gravel events for the ever expanding gravel community.
We are in solidarity with our friends Galway Bay Cycling Club, and by the time their event comes around, things might have changed, or they may even find an alternative route..
Look out for details coming soon..
If there is a will, there is “The Way”.
