Dirty

Dirty 30 Gravel Bike Race

April 02 2022
Saranac, Michigan, USA
The Dirty 30 gravel bike race courses consists of almost 90% gravel roads, the largest percentage of gravel compared to other gravel grinder bike races in West Michigan.  The distance of the long course is 50 miles.  The shorter courses are 30 and 16 miles.  The 30 mile course is considered the short course for the MGRS. 
 
The Dirty 30 events will start and finish in downtown Saranac, just a short jaunt from Grand Rapids, MI.  The first half of the course heads east into the open farm country, offering a combination of gently rolling hills and pancake flat gravel roads.   The second half of the course brings you west into a hillier and more forested section of the course.  
 
The Dirty 30 course takes place on open roads, so all Michigan road laws apply to all cyclists.  Cyclists must obey all traffic signs, may not ride more than two abreast and should not cross the center line.  Key intersections will be manned by volunteers and Ionia County police.  
 
Hope to see you there!
