Gravel Miami

February 07 2021
Homestead, Florida

Miami is known for many things, like the glitz and glamour of south beach, or the white sand beaches, but there is so much more to be explored. Only a short drive inland is the Florida Everglades, here you can see the original and ancient Florida. For the select few adventurers that desire to push their limits and explore uncharted territory, this is their playground.

Gravel Miami is a South Florida’s premier gravel event that plans to showcase the hidden gravel trail in South Florida. It is an event that is truly for everyone with two distances (36 & 48 miles) to suit every level of rider.  The course winds throughout the levee roads like ‘Frog Pond’ and ‘Rocky Glades’ that surrounds Florida most precious resource, the Florida Everglades.

Gravel Miami will be held in the crisp air month of February on a Sunday (February 7, 2021).  The event starts and finishes at the iconic Miami Brewing Company, an oasis in the farmlands of Homestead at the edge of the Everglades.  The Miami Brewing Company is an 10,000 square-foot tap room that sits on 10 acres of land.  There is free overnight RV parking and plenty of room for social distancing.  The beer is cold and refreshing, the staff is welcoming and the atmosphere is eclectic and interesting.  From the brewery, the riders will embark on their journey along the scenic gravel roads of old Florida and may experience wildlife like gators, pythons, deer and more. 

After the ride, there will be beers drank, finisher medals, awards given and friends made.  Participants will have their dirty bikes cleaned and washed in our secured ‘Bike Valet’ which is a fundraiser for the not-for-profit team Top Step Development who raises funds for aspiring junior riders in Florida.
