Belgian Waffle Ride Debuts 2021 Eliel Kits

by editors on April 22, 2021

Monuments of Cycling has designed a new collection of Belgian Waffle Ride kits with Eliel. 

We’re very excited about this new BWR kit with it’s subtle nod to the Lion of Flanders. We think it perfectly fits the festive spirit of returning to racing on the new BWR course with the largest field of riders an event like this has ever seen! It’s our 10th Anniversary, too!

Hard to believe that it’s been a decade since that first Belgian Waffle Ride. Order window closes on the California kits on May 2, 2021 so click the link and order up.

2020 Belgian Waffle Ride Postponed

by editors on March 18, 2020

Organizers of the World Famous Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride remained hopefully optimistic right down to the end, but on March 18, 2020 they pulled the plug on their May San Diego County event and moved it to November 8, 2020. But not to worry, people who registered have options. Here’s how they tell it:

It’s only been a handful of days since we last emailed regarding the Coronavirus, but so much has transpired since then. So much, in fact, we feel compelled to circle back on the subject, NOW.

Yes, the situation has escalated so rapidly that we’ve had to sadly override our optimism for the May 3rd event happening as scheduled. With the Coronavirus pandemic, events like ours are being forced to postpone (or cancel). As a result, we will be moving the Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride to its new fall date of November 8, 2020… with the same (or larger) Pure Cycling Expo and VIP/Media events running from November 6 – 8, 2020.

Registered riders for the Canyon BWR and related events will be automatically transferred to the November 8 event. For those that cannot make the new date, we are offering deferrals into one of the other Tripel Crown of Gravel events: Asheville, NC BWR on August 30, 2020 and Cedar City, UT on October 17, 2020. We will also provide deferrals into the 2021 Canyon BWR, which will be held May 2 in San Diego. The Tripel Crown now will run entirely in 2020 with the Grand Finale being the November 8 event in San Diego.

In short, riders can:
Stay Registered for the Nov 8th San Diego BWR
Transfer to the Asheville BWR Aug 30th
Transfer to the Cedar City BWR Oct 17th
Transfer to the San Diego BWR May 2nd (2021)
You have until July 1, 2020 to designate which option you prefer or you will automatically remain registered for the Nov. 8 event! All of this can be easily managed on the Events.com page. 

We hope and pray we will all be on the other side of this pandemic by August 30, 2020. For the rest of the instructions, please follow the jump.

As hardmen and women by the hundreds struggled across the finished line on Sunday afternoon, April 24, 2016, it was obvious that the 5th Annual Belgian Waffle Ride was the toughest yet. With 146 miles of body pounding, mind bending terrain (including 41 miles of dirt and 13,000 feet of climbing) it is no wonder that this year’s event was won by Jelly Belly’s Josh Berry, a professional cyclist with experience from some real Belgian classics.

“I’d heard about the BWR, but it was even better than I expected,” said Berry, professional cyclist for team Jelly Belly p/b Maxxis. “These events are for the riders, and it’s great to have challenging rides where just finishing is an accomplishment. Not everyone can go race in Europe, and this gives people in North America a taste of something hard, but available to everyone. The mix of dirt and hills really suited me and made for a super fun day out there. I hope to be back next year.”

On the women’s side international cyclo-cross star, Amanda “Panda” Nauman (pictured above) dominated the field to beat defending women’s champion Rhonda Quick by just over 12 minutes.
