Our newest event in the Gravel Roll world is the Opelika Okey Dokey (say Ohkee-Dohkee).

Opelika means "Big Swamp" in the Creek language, and you'll ride past dozens of creeks and over bridges seemingly lost to time and space. But don't worry, there's none of the loose stuff here, just hard red dirt interspersed with a sprinkling of gravel across miles and miles of twisting and rolling terrain.

You'll ride through endless timberland and spooky hollows and be rewarded with occasional views of the Fall Line as it stretches across the landscape. Look closely and you may even discover another Appalachiosaurus hiding in plain sight in the road berms.

If you are looking to put some finishing touches on your Unbound training this is the perfect course. While Unbound will lack the curving roads, the short and recurring undulations of the Okey Dokey mimic much of what you will experience at Unbound.

We will release the courses about two weeks out. It's not that we are trying to keep it a big secret but often times we are refining the route, or there are washouts, controlled burns (which you think they'd post that...) or even timber being pulled which we don't always get notified about.
