Ride Story

This 58-mile route begins and ends at Gravel City Adventure & Supply Company, the “home” bicycle shop for Dirty Kanza, the World’s Premier Gravel Road Race. A favorite of local cyclists, this loop has a bit of everything from dirt roads, crushed a graded gravel, to gravel the size of your fist. You’ll enjoy gentle rolling hills, along with a few “punches to the gut” climbs. The special treat comes at Miles 32-35, where you will ride through open range. (Don’t spook the cattle.) This is pure Flint Hills riding at its finest. There are no services or businesses along this route, and cell phone coverage is spotty. So be prepared to cover the entire distance with the supplies you carry.
