The 2022 Belgian Waffle Ride California, a Euro-style Spring Classic, provided insanity, a challenge and the unparalleled experience that has made the event infamous. The BWR attracts world-class cyclists from around the world and has a cult following of fervent racers from cyclocross, road and mountain biking. It’s known as much for its difficulty, with all the glorious trappings of the Belgian Spring Classics, as it is for the celebratory atmosphere that pervades the event’s every funky facet.
The 2022 edition of the Belgian Waffle Ride California offered three ride options including the Waffle (132 miles), Wafer (71 miles) and Wanna (38 miles).
The Waffle edition saw Alexey Vermeulen (Jukebox – ENVE) and Moriah Wilson (Specialized // Meteor) post the fastest times to take the win.
