The Nordic Gravel Series offers graveI events throughout Finland and the Nordics from June-September, taking advantage of long days and midsummer sun to provide excellent riding conditions. The capstone event to close out the series is Falling Leaves Lahti, 100 kilometres north of Helsinki.
It treats cyclists to a stunning kaleidoscope of fall colors on 130, 75 and 45 kilometre routes. It is a great way to end the season.
