Welkom to the most unique cycling event in the U.S., the Belgian Waffle Ride, affectionately known as the BWR. This is its 12th anniversary and we’ve got a revised, dirtier, more entertaining route this year of 135+ miles, more than 50-miles of which are off-road. In 2021, the BWR was the largest gravel race in the US and grew nearly 175% with so many new female competitors joining in the fun.

This year the Waffle and Wafer are being run on subsequent days, enabling a new challenge for the hardest of the hard. The soon-to-be-legendary Dubbel Header. Ride the 132 mile Waffle on Saturday, and the 70+ mile Wafer on Sunday!

Combined time wins the category.

Area Information

The Belgian Waffle Ride ranges across the inland hills of Northern San Diego County, but with the venue less than 10 miles from the beach, you might want to book a few extra days to recuperate.
