The Gravel Gathering

The Gravel Gathering: Nov. 11

Join us for a weekend of camping, riding, food, and music in Franklin County at Jamison Mill Park in November.

The roads of Franklin County offer adventure gravel riding at its best. Routes cover smooth gravel, low-traffic pavement, and optional singletrack will have you out and about exploring new places with fun people in the crisp fall weather.


Saturday Rides (November 11)

  • We will roll out at 10 a.m. with route options for all levels. We will have of 17, 28, and 41-mile options. Our 17 and 28 mile routes will stick to gravel and pavement, and our 41 mile route adds in some extra adventure with over 7 miles of singletrack. The singletrack is gravel bike appropriate and rideable on 38mm tires--though most riders might prefer 42s. Mountain bikes are always welcome too.
  • All routes will pass two aid stations. We will have snacks and a mechanic on course to keep your adventure going strong.
  • All routes will be marked. However, it is ultimately your responsibility for navigation. Paper cue sheets will be available, but we recommend downloading the GPS routes to a cycling computer. You can rent a cycling computer with the route loaded if you would like to try before you buy.
  • GPS route information coming soon.

Sunday Bonus Rides (November 12)

  • Stick around on Sunday and ride with your new friends. Sunday rides will be unsupported--you are on your own for navigation, food, and support--but the campground will remain open so you can enjoy the facilities for the day. There is also 6 miles of singletrack in the campground you can enjoy if you want to bring your mountain bike too.
