We have created VIP Experiences featuring our professional athletes that includes three events, on and off the bike, to offer you the ultimate Gravel Locos Experience while raising more funds for our Cause!
Each event is open to all but is a much smaller and intimate event that is limited to a very small number of participants. As such, we recommend that you start registering immediately.
How registration works:
Pick and choose the VIP event(s) you would like to attend;
Register online for each event to be pre-registered and save your spot;
You’re in! Get ready to meet, ride with and hang out with the pros!
100% of the funds raised from these VIP events go directly to the Hico VFD.
