GOSH DARN 4
The 4th year of the Best Gravel Event in the South.
The weekend has come! GOSH DARN
Route and cues for 100km route:
Route and cues for 30km route:
Over the past four years, cellphone signal has become increasingly better in Hickman County. We strongly recommend that if you are not using a GPS head unit, you download the Ride with GPS app, create an account, save the routes, and download them (tap the dots to the right of the route name).
Use 7480 Oak Springs Rd to navigate to the event site, upon arrival look for a driveway named "Copperhead Rd." The number on the road marker does not match the address above, but it is still the correct road.
DO NOT approach the campsites/starting area from the West via Malone Rd. Malone Rd is best described as a Jeep Trail. Only enter via Oak Springs Rd, accessible from Lyles Rd/Co Hwy 944. If approaching from the East (via Hwy 100) the turn is on the right after the Dollar General. If approaching from the West (Hwy 48) the turn is on the left after the Pinewood Market.
PARKING FOR RACERS/RIDERS:
Park outside of the first gate on the right, there will be a volunteer directing you.
PARKING FOR CAMPERS:
Campers have two options, you can park at the top of the driveway past the first gate beside the two pole-barns, or you can go down the driveway and park by the campsite. This is possible in a FWD or AWD sedan, but I'd really only recommended if you're driving an AWD SUV or 4x4 vehicle.
Race check-in and registration will be located in the second parking lot where campers are parking.
