HOW TO WATCH BELGIAN WAFFLE RIDE CEDAR CITY THIS SATURDAY MORNING!

Belgian Waffle Ride Cedar City’s inaugural edition will be live streamed Saturday morning on Facebook and Instagram. This year BWR planned on expanding to two new locations outside of its San Diego home. With Plans for the Asheville race put on hold until 2021 along  with the San Diego classic, the novel Cedar City gravel edition is the featured event on the 2020 calendar.

Waffles, beer and 125 miles of racing are on tap for the riders on Saturday. The course will feature over 90 miles of Utah’s greatest gravel roads.

BWR will be following the women’s and men’s race with different vehicles and posting live video repeatedly throughout the race.
