Ohio Gravel Race Series

 Funk Bottoms Gravel 200K is the second stop on the 2022 Ohio Gravel Race Series. The Ohio Gravel Race Series is a point-based series composed of 8 unique gravel road races within the great state of Ohio.  Racers will test themselves against diverse road conditions such as gravel, dirt, singletrack trails, rural back roads, and some asphalt.  Route conditions vary from hard-packed dirt to softball-sized rocks and everything in between with distances ranging from 50 to 130 miles.

April 30, 2022 Black Fork Gravel Grinder

The Black Fork 54-mile race route is Ohio's Premier Gravel Event. These diverse gravel roads coupled with 5500 feet of stupid steep elevation will surely test those legs and lungs...and of course a beer at the finish always hits the spot.

ROJR...Back to our roots. We love being part of the Ohio Gravel Series, but we realize the "team' aspect of this event is what makes it special. Suffering together builds a camaraderie like nothing else. ROJR 2020 will be held Saturday, Oct. 10th and include 2 and 4 men/women teams with a 100 and 60 mile route option. Yes, you series contenders will still have to ride alone, but we're encouraging everyone else to find a compatible partner or partners and let's have some fun suffering together. The event will include some "challenges" along the way, rest/pick-up stops and great food and prizes as always. Put this event on your calendar now!

This 50-mile race route ain't no Boy Scout picnic. The weather could be glorious or treacherous. It all comes down to you, your equipment, and the voices in your head.
