Welkom to the most unique cycling event in the U.S.—the Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride—affectionately known as the BWR. This is the 2nd edition of the Cedar City event and was the first BWR to be held outside of San Diego. We're excited to offer something completely different with the Cedar City location, the first event was a huge success. 

The third and final event of the Tripel Crown of Gravel Series is the 2021 BWR Cedar City, on September 25, the only one at elevation in the scenic and rugged West Desert of Southern Utah. At nearly 80% off-road, this is a true gravel edition of the BWR, graced with the most coveted decomposed granite roads and tricky off-road sectors throughout the region. The event is again being hosted by the town of Cedar City and will feature a 128-mile route that wends through the famous Red Hills, the Parowan Gap along Little Salt Lake, Coal and Whitney Canyons, and Granite Mountain.

Created as an extremely challenging race in the spirit of the great European one-day Spring Classics, the BWR is an unusually difficult race. There will be three distances at each location: the long Waffle route and a half-distance Wafer option for those looking to get a taste of the fun without the life-changing commitment of the Waffle. Plus, we’ve added the Wanna ride, which is roughly half the Wafer. Each venue will have a local bike- minded charity. BWR planners will raise funds and awareness for community causes in each location, much as it does the San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA) in San Diego.

Each Waffle will offer a prize purse to top-five finishers, female and male. The Tripel Crown of Gravel Series has a separate prize purse to the top three men and women overall across the SD, NC and UT events, based on cumulative times. An age group competition will award top riders in each age bracket with Tripel Crown of Gravel honors. All riders who register and complete all four 2021 BWRs will receive special awards for their Quadruple heroics.

BWR sponsors for the Series include Canyon Bikes, IRC Tire, Eliel Cycling, 100% Eyewear, Hammer Nutrition, ENVE Wheels, Monster Hydro, Wahoo Fitness, Wend Performance and Source Endurance.
