The new GREENVILLE NIGHT GRINDER, formerly the G3: Greenville Gravel Grinder, is a self-supported gravel bike ride, which is held in conjunction with the 25th annual Cotton Patch Challenge. As in our inaugural G3 in 2019, there are two route options to choose from: a 50k Route, ranging from 31 to 37 miles, and a more challenging 100k Route, ranging from 60 to 70 miles. Both routes take you on a variety of surfaces, from gravel to dirt, with a few sections of paved roads. Each starts and finishes in historic downtown Greenville, where lots of other activities will be going on for the whole family to enjoy. One of the highlights of the 100k route is a section along the NETT (Northeast Texas Trail). In fact, the GREENVILLE NIGHT GRINDER is put on as a fundraiser to help raise funds for the Chaparral portion of the NETT, which runs from Farmersville thru Hunt, Fannin, Delta, and Lamar counties to the outskirts of Paris.
PACKET PICK-UP & CHECK-IN
Check-in & Walk-up Registration will open at 4 pm on Saturday afternoon prior to the 6 pm start. Because we have different swag bags, there will be No Early Packet Pick-up. ALL Greenville Night Grinder riders should look for the Bell’s Canopy / Tent just outside of Landon’s Winery on the day of the event.
Along with the Greenville Night Grinder and the Cotton Patch Challenge, the City of Greenville will be hosting the Lee Street Jamboree! So, between all of the varied events going on, there’s gonna be lots for the whole family to enjoy.
