Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Wicked Wilson 100 - Central Kansas

Who said Kansas was flat, I rode in the Wicked Wilson 100 yesterday. The ride actually turned out to be 113 miles with around 8,000 feet of climbing in the Smokey Hill region of Kansas. This was by far the hardest bike ride I have ever done and I feel very fortunate to have finished.

FYI - I rode DK 100 this year to completion and this was actually much harder than DK. The ride takes place the second Saturday in September every year (this was year 3). If you are looking for a real challenge next fall you need to put this on your list.

That looks like a REALLY hard race! I used to spend my summers in Hays KS so I know that area well, definitely not flat

The WW was my first gravel event. I chose the 59 mile tour. There is no way I would have made the long route. I am pleased I finished in 5 hours. Had a lot of fun though. Congrats to the winner and all participants. I live in the county north, we have hills but not that big. Very well run event.

Bringing it back!

Hey all!

The original planner passed the baton to me to bring back the Wicked Wilson. We would love to have you back on the course with some new features including some hill climb competitions using Strava segments. 🤘 facebook.com/wickedwilsongravel
Registration opened yesterday. Date is set for Aug. 7.
Thanks for considering!
