Dear Gravel Family,
We've been going through the ways we could share with you our emotions about Gravel Camp 2019. First we thought it would be appropriate to address ya'll from a rather formal perspective; then we laughed! We aren't very formal, but we do take our work and your experience seriously. In many ways that's why it works so well. We all choose to be here and because of that, we're a community of people who desire the feeling of being connected. That's what Gravel Camp is. A place to reconnect, ride your bike and eat great food. So, instead of sharing with you what we thought you might like to hear, we're going to tell you the honest truth.
You know us. You know why The Cyclist's Menu is operating. We've dedicated who we are to this experience. At times we find ourselves doubting our journey, but it only makes us work harder and search farther for inspiration. Gravel Camp season 2019 is going to be more special then what we've experienced in the past. Between February 19th and March 25th, 2019 (5 separate weeks) you're invited to reconnect with the San Rafael Valley, its food system and your soul. We can't wait to enter the Spirit World with you soon.

Official Arizona Gravel Camp dates are online at our website. But, we've included them here as well for easier access!
San Rafael Valley, Arizona
The 2019 season brings us farther in our journey to offer an experience unlike any other cycling company in the business. To accomplish our goals, we've pulled together an incredible team to guide you, inspire you and make you laugh during that climb when you're thinking about quitting. After all, those are the special moments. We can't wait for you to meet them. Stay tuned to our social media over the course of the next few months as we roll out their red carpet.
Beyond the incredible riding that the San Rafael Valley offers, we've designed a family style meal house that's going to bring us closer than any table we've dined at before. Tucked away in an alley behind Main Street, we've found a rustic old garage that will be lit by candles and twinkly lights. This old ranch style setting will be our gathering place for breakfast and dinner. Bring your favorite sweater and that old pair jeans, you'll be warm by the fire as we tell stories into the night.

Were heading to Iceland and Vermont in 2019!
August 2019 will be an unforgettable experience in Iceland. We have partnered up with Icebike Adventures for what will be a milestone in the history of Gravel Camp. We traveled to Iceland this summer, August 2018, to scout and curate this experience. We couldn't be more proud of how it's come together and the plan we have in store for the 12 riders who will join us. #icelandgravel is a bucket list experience and designed for the seasoned rider. It will be challenging, there will be tough weather, we will eat well and go home satisfied! 7 nights, 8 days of fresh fish & volcanic gravel roads.
July 2019 is another incredibly special moment centered around #ridebikeseatfood. We've partnered up with the amazing people at Rasputitsa Gravel Road Race. Heidi Myers and Anthony Moccia have become dear friends; we couldn't be more excited to share their Vermont secrets with those who join us in the Green Mountain State. Steep rolling hill country meets lush farmland as we make our way through the Northeast Kingdom. An area of Vermont that is incredibly rural, the gravel road riding is world class and we will travel miles and miles of it. We might even have a post ride BBQ on Caspian Lake with Jasper Hill Farm and Hill Farmstead Brewing Company!
We wish you an incredible Fall! Stay in touch with us, we want to know about all the badass adventures you're going on. We can't wait to #ridebikeseatfood with you very soon.
Teeth to the wind,
Heidi and Z
