Our holiday gravel classic is back and with an exciting change of venue! We will be staging from the Callisburg Community Center in the heart of the Cross Timbers Forest. Chip timing (for training) Spinistry Chow and cold drinks are included with entry.

As always, free entry is our gift to Club Spinistry members for this one. Planned distances of 75, 55 and 35 miles.

All routes will be fully marked and we will provide GPS navigation files/capability to all registered riders. Water tables will be provided for all routes. Apart from course markings and water tables these routes are considered self supported. Riders must make their own transportation arrangements if unable to complete the routes for any reason. There will NOT be SAG support. Please call 911 in case of emergency.

All riders are expected to adhere to the Texas Transportation Code. All routes utilize public roads/property for their entirety. Please be aware of and courteous to all road/park/trail users. This is NOT a race. Recorded times are meant for individual reference/use for training purposes. We do ask that riders make us aware of any course deviations so that other participants might have proper and accurate times for evaluation purposes.

Projected/mapped routes are considered preliminary until they are marked and final on event week. Routes may require alteration for numerous reasons. Route files and online maps will be made available to registered participants the week of the event.

IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT rules info for racers at Spinistry events!!!

Thanks to our friend Dylan Johnson doing the math it is now a REQUIREMENT that all competitors properly mount their number plates or be subject to a time penalty.

Proper mounting is on the bar or cables, facing forward with the numbers clearly visible. No wrapping on the head tube, no sticking in a pocket or bag, no mounting sideways on frame or fork. Time penalty for an improperly mounted number plate is the greater of 5 minutes per 100 miles (5 minute minimum for shorter distances) or however long it takes us to chase down and identify a racer with an incorrectly mounted number.

We will continue to allow comfort/aero/gravel bars for all racers since that is an aero benefit available to all that more than offsets the number plate penalty.

More soon.
