2023 Midnight Massacre

Sat August 5, 2023 Valley View, TX 76272 US Directions
The Original Gravel Night Ride


302 W Obuch St
Valley View, TX US 76272


The original night time gravel grinder is back! Staging from Valley View, TX on the evening of 8/5/23. Club Spinistry members save 66% through the first week of July.

All routes will be marked and there will be neutral water tables on the routes as well as convenience stores. Cold drinks and snacks will be provided to all riders post ride/race. Feel free to bring your coolers for the town square party scene. Club Spinistry members also receive a complimentary cocktail from our friends at Whiskey Hollow distillery.

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 sanctioned/official race. Recorded times are meant for individual reference/use for training purposes and potentially bragging rights. 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.

Please note that the timed options are for training reference purposes only. These are not formal races. There is no sprint finish, each timed participant must checkin at the timing table per instructions issued during riders' meeting. Consider the timing format a mass start time trial. No cash awards but bragging rights will be available.

Spread the word, spread the love.
