King Ridge Dirt Supreme Hopper

King Ridge Dirt Supreme

Part of the Grasshopper Adventure Series

You’ve never ridden King Ridge like this. We are starting in Duncan’s Mills this year so we will start with a slow burn up Bohemian Hwy to Occidental. Then climb up Coleman Valley and descend Willow Creek on dirt. Hwy 1 to Fort Ross. Dirt descent to Salt Point. Dirt climb up Kruse. Climb Hauser Bridge. Back King Ridge to Caz and finish on East Austin Creek Rd near Duncan’s Mills. If you are looking for a supreme cross/dirt/gravel challenge this is it. Road, cross, Diverge….? Depends on what you have and what you can ride. Big tires and don’t flat! If you loved Old Caz this ride will blow your mind!

Option #2: Riders will head out River Rd to Hwy 1 and follow the same course as the big loop. Eliminates climb to Occidental and Willow Creek descent. You will still have the Salt Point dirt descent and Kruse dirt climb so a gravel bike with slick/semi slick tires or a road bike with 28c would be a good option.

When and where is the Land Run 100 held?
LR100 is held Saturday, March  16, 2019 in Stillwater, OK.

There are lots of “Gravel Grinder” cycling events. What makes Land Run 100 unique?
Who said anything about unique? We love the Dirty Kanza 200 but it only comes around once a year. The Land Run 100 is a training mile stone race for those who dare attempt the DK200. Complete the LR100 and you are on the right track for the DK200. DNF the LR100, you still have time to fix what went wrong before the DK200. Flint Hills we are not, but gravel, hills, and red dirt we got. Careful on those rickety bridges by the way, we are taking you on the far back road
