Grefillinn

Say what?

20230812_083351

The term “Grefillinn” in Icelandic refers to a pickaxe and symbolizes the gravel that has been carved away by the harsh Icelandic highland weather and glaciers, providing a surface to ride on. Additionally, “Hver grefillinn” is a mild exclamation used similar to “What in the blooming hell,” possibly uttered by participants while encountering the scenic views and challenging course.

The Race

The race starts and finishes at Logaland, our info center.

You will embark on a memorable journey during the race as you traverse through Reykholtsdalur and Lundareykjadalur, which are two picturesque agricultural valleys boasting vast grass fields, salmon rivers, and sheep. The ascent out of Lundareykjadalur is known as Uxahryggir and involves a climb of approximately 15 km and 300 meters. This segment offers a sight of numerous waterfalls. The next segment is the Kaldidalur highland road that can only be described as magnificent, situated in a desolate post-glacial environment. The road is slightly rougher than the previous ones, and the highest point of Kaldidalur sits at around 700 meters and provides a great panoramic view in all directions, including the glacier Eiríksjökull and the former glacier Ok. The downhill stretch towards Húsafell will take you through varying landscapes, beginning with the post-glacial desert and concluding in the lush forest and clear rivers of Húsafell. As you ride through the beautiful agricultural valleys of Hvítársíða, you will be inspired by the magnificent Hvítá glacial river. The next segment will offer a diverse countryside of Borgarfjörður, which comprises of challenging climbs and bumpy roads. Finally, before you hit the asphalt road on your way back, you will go through Varmaland, which is renowned for its cucumber greenhouses. Overall, it is a ride that will stay with you for a long time.

Grefillinn is brought to you by Krauma. There is no better way to end your gravel grinding than with a bath, beer and burger.

No Road Needed

Not all roads are created equal. 

Some of them are pretty rough, in fact, which is where the Nuroad from Cube comes in. 

Blending cyclocross ruggedness with road bike alacrity, it’s the perfect tool for nudging the boundaries and exploring a bit further off the beaten track 

Grefillinn is sponsored by Cube and Tri.
