2016 Funk Bottoms Gravel- The Course

The 2016 Funk Bottoms Gravel 100/200 will start at 8:00 am  at a roadside park on SR-179 outside of Lakeville.  There will be a pavilion and an outhouse.  Google maps directions can be found here

Course notes can be found on the Maps page. Learn about the history of the FBG and past winners here
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 7,500 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. 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! The course will have sections from the previous years races along with some new sections.
