NEW THIS YEAR: The 50 Mile distance is officially a RACE! See below for the awards categories.
You don’t have to ride 200 miles to experience the world-class gravel that the Flint Hills have to offer. Challenge yourself to 50 scenic miles along the prairies, grassland and rolling hills outside of Emporia. The Garmin UNBOUND Gravel 50 packs all the beauty of the longer distances into a more condensed route that will leave you feeling tall and proud as you cross the finish line in downtown Emporia.
Super family-friendly, we encourage you to bring the whole crew!
