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.

Dirty Reiver

WHAT IS THE DIRTY REIVER?

The Dirty Reiver is a 200 km off road cycling challenge based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in the mid west of America. Riders will traverse gravel forest access roads that service the vast areas of forest covering the border region of England and Scotland. The event will take riders through remote areas providing outstanding viewpoints across this spectacular part of the UK.
Due to the shared use of some of the course the Dirty Reiver is NOT a race.  However, finishing times will be graded based upon the first finisher and these grades are detailed in finishing times on the event page.

4G (Great Gator Gravel Grinder)

 Stay Tuned For 2018 Updates
It’s back for the  sixth consecutive year: The 4G is the southernmost un-southern gravel ride and the uttermost unique ride of its kind in South Florida. The route covers the Gator’s share (or should we say Python’s share these days?) of remote areas you can find in the Miami-Dade area, featuring canals and access roads with very little pavement involved. We strongly recommend running nothing more narrow than a 40c tire as some of the paths along the route can be quite demanding.  
 Save the dates and keep an eye on the event page for updates on this years 4G!! I am working hard with a great group of people and businesses to bring more fun, adventure and stuff to the table for 2019. Stay in touch and learn more by joining the 4G Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/events/1282070061886526

Panaracer Texas Chainring Massacre

THE FASTEST 100K ON GRAVEL! No license required.
The Texas Chainring Massacre is a full on gravel grinder featuring a unique combination of dirt roads and desolate country roads that promises to be both scenic and challenging. Riders will be able to enjoy a fantastic route that starts and ends in the “civilized” part of the D/FW Metroplex near Valley View, TX while meandering through some scenic rural areas. 100K Dash For the Cash – This marked course ride will provide neutral aid/support station at approximately the half way point but no outside support is allowed except at the aid station. Plan to bring enough food and supplies to be self supported in case of break down since it might take several hours for a sweep/sag vehicle to reach stranded riders. Cash payout 3 deep and Series Points awarded. All roads whether paved or unpaved are public roads subject to the regulations of the great State of Texas. Participants are required to obey all “rules of the road” and laws for the applicable jurisdiction(s) in which they operate their bicycles and/or other vehicles. This applies to both the featured event as well as any practice or warm up events. The Texas Chainring Massacre is an all-weather event unless conditions are deemed unsafe for riders so there is a no refunds policy. Promoter may modify the course at any time for rider safety or based on course conditions. 100 Mile Open – The classic long distance gravel grinder. This will be a marked course with neutral support at least every 33 miles. Cash payout 3 deep and Series Points awarded. 100K Category races by age/discipline. Awards 3 deep, no cash payout. Non Competitive Fun Ride – Multiple distance options for everyone from the complete beginner to the all day wanderers.

Hosts and Sponsors – More info soon but the town of Valley View and Whiskey Hollow Distillery will be going above and beyond to roll out the red carpet for us so stay tuned for details!
