Barry-Roubaix is one of the OG gravel events. In fact, it’s so well established in the mitten state that permanent street signs are marking all the routes, except the latest 100 miler option. It’s also one of the largest gravel road races in the world, with more than 3,800 riders toeing the line. The classic 62-mile course features 3,800 feet of climbing and is on mostly fast, hard-packed, rolling gravel farm roads with some rugged two-track and rocky sections thrown in for good measure. It’s early spring in Michigan, so there can also be mud, snow, and ice. With large crowds and no sustained climbing, there are many opportunities to work with a group for some fast fun.
