The second edition of the Dusty Moon Gravel Ride will take place on Saturday, June 11, 2022.
The Dusty Moon Gravel Ride was born out of the personal quest of a group of gravel enthusiasts living in Mechelen, in the heart of Belgium. They set out to map the best unpaved sections in their region, a region that is mostly built-up and not exactly known for its off-road adventures. Needless to say, it was a challenge to map all these hidden gems, but the result was worth sharing with all the other gravel grinders!
Since the historical nickname of the inhabitants of Mechelen is Maneblussers (Moon Extinguishers), the name of the event had to refer to 'moon'. And the dust*? Well, that explains itself right? And that's the story of how the Dusty Moon Gravel Ride was born.
*#FUNFACT: 'Dust' means 'thirsty' in flemish.
