Anyone who’s ridden the gravel roads of the Comox Valley know how good it is. A group of gravel enthusiasts have put together, for your riding pleasure, a challenging adventure ride linking some of the best routes and climbs around. Starting and finishing in the historic village of Cumberland, the Forbidden Gravel Experience will take you through lush forests, around beautiful Comox lake and up into the Beaufort mountain range. We’ve linked together an adventure ride that is a true gravel cycling test. We’ve added in some sections of singletrack and doubletrack to keep things interesting. For those not up to the epic distance we’ve added a shorter course suitable for a wider range of ages and abilities.
Proceeds from the event proudly support Trail Bicycles youth cycling team, UROC, Cumberland Community Schools society, Vanier High School mountain bike team, and Cumberland Community Forest Society
In light of uncertainty around health risks and infection reduction planning around CoVID 19, we have made the decision to suspend registration for now. We will be considering whether we can reopen registration and/or postpone the event as the situation evolves.
