Here's a blurb from the Heck website:
The classic North Shore Gravel Adventure - fun gravel roads, a few challenges here and there and great support from the Heck crew.
2022 marks the 14th anniversary of The Heck of the North. We look forward to a great event with new features to keep it fresh. Stay tuned for updates via our social media links on Facebook and Instagram.
We will be offering THREE beautiful courses this year: the 100 mile course that features over 50 new miles of remote gravel road; the 55 mile course is equally challenging and scenic; and the 20 mile course to introduce new riders to the world of gravel cycling. Each course will have at least one checkpoint to offer fluids and calories to keep you rolling.
Like all gravel events, the Heck is about the challenge, not how fancy your bike is. We recommend 35 mm tires (and larger) or whatever you think is comfortable and capable of delivering you 100 plus miles (29er’s, fatbikes, beefed-up touring bikes.) You are the engine. You are tougher than you think.
REGISTRATION OPENS January 3rd, 2022
