Funk Bottoms 100k & 200k

The 7th edition of the Funk Bottoms Gravel will feature distances of 100Km and 200Km. Riders will have the option if riding one lap or two laps.

The Funk Bottoms 100/200 is a self supported event you must be prepared for any mechanical or nutrition needs. No outside support is allowed. The Funk 100 and 200 will be held on Saturday June 25th at 8:00am, at a roadside park 8587 Ohio 179 in Lakeville, OH.

On each 65 mile loop riders can expect paved, chip and seal, gravel, and dirt roads with over 6,000 feet of climbing.

Who said Ohio is flat? The climbing fun will continue for the 7th year.  The ever-growing Funk Bottoms Gravel will once again challenge cyclists to Ohio’s Toughest Gravel Grinder. Two races, one brutal course!  A one lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double lap 200K race. The course will take riders through some of Ohio’s most scenic roads.  On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,000 feet of vertical climbing! Road conditions are a mix of paved, chip & seal, gravel, and dirt roads. The Funk 100K/200K is a self-supported event and riders must be prepared for any mechanical and nutritional needs. No outside support is allowed. Our good friends at Hammer Nutrition will once again be providing support with Hammer HEED before the race, and at the secret checkpoint. The Preliminary course has been scouted. As usual the course will have sections from the previous years races along with some new sections. Racers will go through Glenmont this year early around mile 13 and another town around mile 40.   This is a cue sheet race. The course is NOT marked, and the roads are open to normal traffic in the area.  Expect to encounter cars, trucks, horses, buggies, farm equipment, ATV’s, buzzards, road kill, and the occasional farm dog at any given time. Rain or shine, it’s Funk time!
