The 2021 Funk Bottoms Gravel Course 



Full details on the course for the 11th Funk Bottoms Gravel. 

100K Route

200K Route






2-way traffic 



Killbuck mile 24





The course will be marked the day before with color-coded turns.  Think like a pirate as you navigate the gravel seas of Ohio. All Starboard turns will have green signs, and all Port turns will have red signs.  There will be blue arrows painted on the ground at turns this year.  

As usual, the course will be a mix of previously used roads along with new roads. Some sections of this year's route have not been included since 2012. There are around 1.5 new miles of roads.  The town of Killbuck around mile 24 will offer riders to purchase food/ water at the local stores.   The last few miles will be like the 2019 course of riding down the abandoned railbed before going through the rock pit at Briar Hill Stone.  Please do not ride the section of Briar Hill Stone before race day as it's private property and will only have access to the land on race day.  There will be a creek crossing again at the end of the railbed near the finish.

There will be 13 sections of pavement for 11.8 miles total.

Arrows on ground

Don't rely on course markings as the locals may remove them after the course has been marked.  Each rider will receive a map and cue sheet that will be accurate.
