Organiser's Description

"Road biking is an opera; gravel biking is rock'n'roll." - Anonymous
 Are you ready to ROCK?
 
Voted one of the best gravel grinders in Missouri by Terrain Magazine, this is a can't-miss back-road adventure. But this is more than a bike ride. It’s a celebration of gravel cycling with as much emphasis on the fun as the ride. The magic happens when you add an after-party supported by the entire community. There will be plenty of great food offerings, a street festival, top-notch live entertainment, complimentary post-ride beverages, prizes for top finishers, and plenty of pampering for our riders. 
 
Registration includes:
Supported bike ride with fully stocked aid stations 
Timing with numbered bike plates
Swag bag filled with coupons and items from sponsors and area merchants
Entry to win great door prizes
Post-ride beer & N/A options
Regardless of your chosen course, you will explore this historic area on gravel roads along the levee district, pass serene creeks and ponds, weave through cliffs, and cross picturesque farmlands.
