Anything Goes Event Series is stoked to contribute to the boomin’ early season gravel race scene in Western Canada by hosting the Cranbrook Gravel Grind this May 25th followed by the Fernie Gravel Grind on July 12th.

Cranbrook Gravel Grind is it a perfect season opener, it’s also great preparation for Canadian Gravel National Championships coming to our neck of the woods in 2024 hosted by our friends Ghost of the Gravel.

If you’re looking for the ideal Nationals tune up race, the Cranbrook Gravel Grind is prime timing to test the legs three weeks out. Sharpen your bike handling skills in the twists and turns of the Cranbrook Community Forest before really getting the legs burning on the climbing-heavy back half of the course.

Fernie Bike Events

Ever since the 2021 atmospheric river that destroyed much of the Fernie Gravel Grind’s routes, they’ve been making due with what was left. Fortunately, thanks to the help of many community members, they are able to bring new roads to this year’s Short Haul.

The 2024 Short Haul is perfect for new racers or those simply looking to have a good time, as it’s not too hot and not too cold, it really is just right. The Short Haul features a roller coaster of a ride with incredible vistas to boot throughout the Elk Valley. As always they’ll have their wild Stoke Stations locked and loaded to support riders topped up with race fuel and premium stoke.

The 2024 Long Haul, is just as beautiful as it is unrelenting and every descent is hard earned. But whether or not you’re in Fernie to be the first across the finish line or to simply take in the scenery with friends, you are guaranteed an epic day out!

Don’t let the distance deceive you! The Updated Long Haul will be sure to challenge riders featuring a wide variety of terrain featuring Forestry Service Roads, tough climbs, flowy double track, and even bits of green singletrack, after all – anything goes with gravel! They guarantee your post race beverage will be well earned. Stay tuned for course files in the coming weeks.

Following their mission, Anything Goes With Gravel, the races are open to anyone and everyone and offers multiple distances, race categories and fun activities for the whole family all weekend long.
