Gravel Grovel 2010

Saturday 27th November is the Gravel Grovel starting at the Story Inn. The organizers are expecting over 200 riders and there is NO day of registration so get on it. The organizers are also putting on a special deal for Little 500 riders-


The Gravel Grovel, which is being held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 27, 2010 at 10am, is pleased to announce a special deal for all IU Little 500 riders. Visit and go to the Gravel Grovel registration page. There is a category up for Little 500 riders for the special low price of $5.00. You will race/ride along with the singlespeed division of the Gravel Grovel. You must ride a Little 5 bike (hand brakes will be allowed and are encouraged) and have your student ID with you when you pick up your number. If you can manage to finish the entire course, we will give you your $5.00 back. The money that is left from those that cannot finish the entire course will be given to the first Little 500 rider to complete the entire course. A reasonable cutoff time at the last time past the fire tower on Tower Ridge Road will be enforced for eligibility. Get your teammates, training partners, rivals, and new recruits together for this great opportunity to kick off your winter training in a truly epic way.

Here is a map of the route (which is 95% correct). Some details to follow from the organizer next week.

Here's another deal: Pay me $5, I'll kick you in the nuts for 4 hours straight, and if you are still standing at the end of it I'll give you your $5 back.

Sound good?

I think you have watched "Fight Club" one to many times.

To clarify an earlier comment I made regarding the (lack of) a brake track on L5 rims: please don't read into that that you shouldn't put an additional brake on. 3 brakes on a L5 bike is a much better idea than 1. While a rim brake on a rim w/ no machined brake track will not work as well as a rim w/ a brake track, it's better than nothing(should your coaster fail).
I don't want people not doing this epic IN classic because they feel their equipment is unsafe. Make it safe. Go do it. Do it on an L5 and get paid!
