When is Gravel Day?

Gravel Day, Pelotonia’s new gravel riding event, will be held on September 30, 2023.

Can I register for Gravel Day in addition to Ride Weekend?

Yes! Riders can participate in both Ride Weekend and Gravel Day. If adding Gravel Day to any Ride Weekend route, the Rider’s fundraising commitment will increase by $1,500. High Rollers ($5,000 fundraising minimum) will be able to participate in both events at no additional commitment increase. Please note, Riders who choose to participate in both Ride Weekend and Gravel Day cannot share funds below their set commitment, nor can they receive funds to get to their fundraising commitment.
Riders do not need to create a separate fundraising profile to participate in both events. If adding a Gravel Day route to your existing Ride Weekend registration, go to pelotonia.org/register and log in to the account that holds your current Ride Weekend registration. Once you are logged into the registration process, select Ride in Gravel Day option and complete the registration process.
