Gravel Unravel Hoh-ly Roller
May 13, 2023
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day second of May, repeating until May 17, 2025
Gravel Unravel is a 3-race gravel series on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Sign up for just one, or try all three! This event is designed for those who wish to challenge their physical abilities to the maximum while enjoying the lushness of Olympic National Forest. Participants can ride short (25-35 miles), medium (45-55 miles), or long (65-80 miles) distances on majority gravel courses (percent varies by race/distance) while enjoying towering evergreens and vivid green moss and ferns. No matter the distance, these courses are no joke – you will climb. And then climb some more. There are both competitive and non-competitive Gran Fondo style divisions, and all are welcome to give the Gravel Unravel a try on their own terms.
About The Hoh-ly Roller
Base camp for this event is at the world famous Hoh River, and there is also a private campground at this location.We hope you like the color green because you are going to be seeing a lot of it. Green trees, green moss, green hills. This is the heart of one of the largest temperate rainforests in the world and you are going to love rolling through it. The Hoh-ly Roller will have long sections of flowy gravel and degraded pavement, combined with some serious hills.
On the long course there are hills of steepness that force you to stare at your toes for what can seem like endless turns on your cranks, with that dreaded question lurking… “should I walk?” We have been told that the climbs on the long course are “the most challenging climbs of any event in the region—by far.”
The Hoh Rainforest and wilderness coast of the Olympic Peninsula is such an iconic area to visit (and a really long drive) that we recommend bringing the whole family! Take them deep into the rainforest inside Olympic National Park. Or take a short drive (only 10 minutes) to Ruby Beach and south from there to Kalaloch beaches. This is an incredible area and you will want to schedule in some time for these wild gems.
