About This Activity

Hosted by 4R Ranch Vineyards & Winery

Gravel Grinder Info First

No license needed!

An amazing day in the scenic Red River Valley area just north of Muenster, TX. Riders and guests will get a sneak preview/early opening look of the brand new facility that is sure to become a national destination for fans of gravel grinders and great wines.

Red River Riot veterans will already be familiar with the area. 4R Ranch is the land on the west side of Windmill Hill! Riders will have the unique experience of riding through rows in the vineyard as well as unique access to private areas of the ranch. The majority of the course will be public dirt roads in the Red River Valley and long route riders will definitely be rolling some new terrain.

The day isn't just for riders though! We're making arrangements for non cycling guests to have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the tasting room, an hor d' oeuvres brunch, winery/vineyards tours and a great late afternoon lunch. We will be adding more goodness to the mix as pieces come together so be sure to join the Facebook event to stay up to speed with the latest.

Rides will arranged for everyone from the first time gravel rider to the ultra competitive 100K racer types and everything in between. Fun ride, podium racing or beginners' clinic, we have you covered. No cash prizes for the racers but we are certain that folks will be racing hard for our unique trophies and awards.
