What you need to know in a nutshell
- Registration for the 2019 Land Run TBA
- Land Run 2019 will be held Saturday March 16th 2019
What is the Land Run 100?
The Land Run 100 is a solo, self supported, non-stop, 100-mile-long bicycling endurance challenge on the gravel and dirt roads surrounding the site of the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889.
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

The first post- the “Getting Rolling” post- will be an introduction and “first impressions” post. Stick around for the follow ups: Checkpoint- a “mid-term” […]
Editor’s Note: In the merge with Gravel Grinder News we knew there was a wealth of reviewed tires, bicycles, and components that might be a good resource on the new site here. With that in mind here is a condensed version of a review that originally appeared on Gravel Grinder News. Any updates on these […]
<Back to News Home | Minneapolis, Minnesota: Frostbike is Quality Bicycle Products dealer only appreciation open house event, but over the years, it has taken on an “industry trade show” flavor. The event doesn’t really kick off until Friday, but QBP brand Foundry Cycles has decided to preempt the festivities with a little bit of a […]
<Back to News Home | Bloomington, Minnesota: It wasn’t long ago that there weren’t any bicycles aimed at riding gravel roads or for racing on gravel roads, for that matter, but Salsa Cycles changed all that several years ago now with the Warbird. It was offered first in aluminum and a top of the range titanium […]
<Back to News Home | Riding Gravel has just taken delivery of a Fuji Tread 1.3 bike that Fuji bills as a “Lifestyle-Cross Terrain” bike, but are eager to have known as a good choice for a gravel road/back road rig. The 1.3 sits in the middle of a three model range that tops out […]
<Back to News Home | While many think of the gravel road/back roads scene as being a Mid-West thing, there has been a culture of “roubaix” type, back road racing and “ultra-cross” style racing going on in the East for several years. Events like Canada’s Paris-Ancaster, or Tour of Battenkill and Iron Cross have been happening […]
