REGISTRATION CLOSES THURSDAY 5/25 AT 11:59PM, SO WE CAN EMAIL OUT ALL THE DETAILS ON 5/26
The BLØM ride from BLØM Meadworks is a FREE self-supported gravel/mixed terrain ride. The ride is NOT A RACE and it’s NOT A NO DROP RIDE either. You could call it a glorified training ride if you really need to call it something. You can go as fast or as slow as you’d like… just come ride your bike and have a good time. Really… It’s that simple.
RIDER’S GUIDE – The guide will be sent out on Friday 5/26 to all who have registered. The rider’s guide will have the finalized routes and all the info you need to have a good time!

3 FLAVORS – There will be 3 flavors available to enjoy. 50k, 100k, and 100-miles. Sign up for whatever one you think you’ll do and then on the day of the event you can switch if you’d like. 50k is for people looking to get a taste of gravel riding or to enjoy a super chill ride. 100k is for the seasoned rider looking to get in a good workout with friends. The 100-miler is for the hard core gravel enthusiast and it gets a little spicy towards the end.

These routes will be included in the rider’s guide that will be sent out closer to the ride.
100-MILE ROUTE – The BLØM Farm is only open the day of the ride. Please do not ride through the farm any other day because it is an active hunting area.
