The Rift. Which plan?

So, I’m going to Iceland to do the 125m Gravel race.

Suggestions on plans?

I would like it to be my A race. I’m in for the win (In my mind and dreams!)

It’s in mid July.



I’d go for the 200 miles Gravel Grinder plan myself.
There’s a few choices and I think it’s probably worth having a look at a couple of others to see what best fits with your own schedule though.
Have a look at the advanced all purpose road plan and the mountainous gran fondo plans

It might be almost more important to find the one that looks good to you personally time and availability wise, as they’ll all do the job !!

Hi @Travis, did you do this in the end? If so, how did you get on? Was it a good experience?

I’m quite interested in this event. My n+1 bike is a gravel bike…and hopefully to be ordered shortly! This looks like a great race to target.



I didn’t.
Work / Covid / Work got in the way.
My place got deferred, so I’ll be racing it next year, so I aim to do the plan (or try to) again.


Thank you. Sorry to hear you didn’t manage it, but ono the brightside you get an whole extra year of suffering en route!
