The Road to Attila is back for it’s third year with a twist! For 2023 we’ve renamed the series to The Road to The Fundo. The new series is designed to give gravel riders some stepping stones to prepare them for the 2023 RCC Gravel Fundo 120km course. Each ride leading up to the big day will give riders a chance to dial in their nutrition, hone their gravel riding skills, make new friends, and discover new roads. Riders of all abilities are encouraged to join the series and each of the 3 rides will be no drop. We will ensure an experienced rider is mixed into each group and you will not be left behind in the loose gravel alone.
Dates: April 29th, May 13th,
May 27th Postponed to June 4th
Ride Lengths: 45km, 80km, 100km (60km)
Cost: $20 for the entire series. With your RTF registration you will receive a $20 discount on your Fundo registration.
Communication: Emails will be sent out to registered participants with event updates. Check your spam folder. Have a question, use the contact link below. Follow the Facebook Page linked below for the most up-to date info.
Difficulty: 100+ km of gravel is no joke. We’re encouraging all riders come out to all rides to get some miles in their legs. Nutrition and hydration are key on long gravel rides. Showing up to the 100km unprepared is strongly discouraged. It will make for a bad day for you and your group. We will try to have 1 aid station on the last ride.
Courses: The courses will be located here and will emailed out the week of each ride. They will be unmarked and we recommend you download the provided gpx file to your Garmin/Wahoo device.
Support: The rides will be in fairly remote areas. It’s up to you to have everything you’ll need to repair your bike (tubes, c02, etc).
Registration: Register at the link below. There is no cap on the number of participants in the series. Registration will be left open and you can register at any point during the series.
No Drop: We want this to be fun. These rides are meant to be relaxed. Do your intervals another day. Breaking up a group by pushing the pace is discouraged. Regrouping after climbs is encouraged.
Groups: The groups are what make these rides fun and enjoyable for all skill levels. You will be riding in the group (Slow, Medium, Fast) that you indicate when you register. You are required to ride with your group throughout the events. For the first two rides, groups will start a few minutes apart. For last ride, all groups will start together. Please stay with your group.
