Gravel Squad

The RAR Gravel Squad’s mission is to expand the vision of inclusivity, diversity, and representation specifically at gravel events.

We do this by creating a stronger FTWN-B community, one in which rather than competing against each other, we support, celebrate, and connect to grow and develop as individuals and a community as a whole. We believe that having a community at these events makes them easier and more fun to participate in.

Non-binary, transgender, femme, and women cyclists interested in gravel race events are encouraged to join the Gravel Squad at any time. To join the community, review the info below, and fill out the following survey.

*You will be added to the Google network as well as newsletters in approximately 1-2 weeks.
