The inaugural event celebrates parity accomplishments, an equal race experience for all riders, and giving back to the local community

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (Aug. 14, 2019) –SBT GRVL, presented by Canyon Bicycles, is Colorado’s newest gravel bike race and celebration and kicks off in Steamboat Springs on this Saturday, August 17.

Over 1500 riders from 49 states and seven countries will converge to the community of Steamboat Springs for the event’s inaugural year.

The warm hospitality of Steamboat and the rugged beauty of Routt County await cyclists and their families, who will be treated to a brand expo and a pro athlete panel, among other gravel-cycling activities on Saturday. On Sunday, riders  will pedal through one of three course distances ranging from 37 to 141 miles, all of which showcase the mountain-town-meets-ranching-community beauty unique to Steamboat Springs, Colo.

SBT GRVL was not founded to be just another gravel cycling event. Founders Amy Charity, Ken Benesh and Mark Satkiewicz are proud to launch SBT GRVL as a values-driven event that gives back to the ranching community of Routt County, Colo., the youth of Steamboat Springs, and to support equality and parity in cycling.
