2021 Minnesota Gravel Events

Rural Minnesota is home to quite a few long standing gravel road races and in recent years many new events have started to become a yearly tradition with cyclists.  With varying terrain, minimum maintenance roads, elevation changes, great rural scenery and unpredictable weather in the Spring and Fall, these events are sure to be fun and challenging.  Some are free while others require registration fees.  Almost all are unsupported requiring the participants to be their own repair and support crew.


This year's calendar will include all types of  gravel races and rides from around the state and western Wisconsin.  Some of these have registration cutoff dates, have a rider cap, or more information and registration details that are yet to be announced.  Below is a list of all of the gravel events in Minnesota that I'm aware of in chronological order.  I will continue to update and add events to this post as they become available.  If you are a race or event organizer and would like your event listed here and on my 2021 Minnesota Bike Tours, Rides, Races & Events Schedule, please send me an e-mail.

*Due to the Covid-19 outbreak some events may have been cancelled, postponed or rescheduled.
