Get your Sam Houston National Forest gravel on this fall. The R3 Express has two routes, the 'lil Sam is a beginner friendly 22 mile loop and the Big Sam is 50 miles. Both routes have less than 4 miles of pavement and wind through the beautiful pines of the SHNF. The start/finish for the event is at the Shawshank Frisbee Golf course. Please note that parking for the event will be .3 miles at the Four Notch Hunters Camp.
If you are new to gravel cycling, we look forward to welcoming you into the GRAVEL FAMILY!! If you have been around for a while we are excited to see you again. The 2023 R3 Express course will be on many of the roads used for the Prison City Gravel Challenge over the last 5 years with some added Forest Service roads closed to vehicles (“B” roads). RIDERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO DISMOUNT AND WALK THEIR BIKE OVER TWO WOODEN BRIDGES ON FS 207.
All riders must have the routes dowloaded as the course will not have any signage. New for the 2023 event are age group awards for groups with 5 or more riders!!
