Indiana's Premier Gravel Century, the Dust Bowl 100 presented by Zipp, returns for year #4 in 2024!  After welcoming a sold-out field of 800 riders from 29 different states in 2023, we're excited to be opening registration to 1,000 participants! 

Traversing the wide open farm fields, century old bridges, and wooded creek valleys of west-central Indiana, the Dust Bowl 100 offers a scenic journey across some of the midwest's finest gravel roads.  The event is meant to be a challenging race for those that want to push themselves and see how quickly they can conquer all that the route throws at them.  BUT it’s also meant to be a rewarding and memorable experience for those that just want to unplug from the busyness of everyday life and explore roads that will refresh the soul.  Three distances are available (100 miles, 80 miles, and 44 miles), so no matter if you choose to race, ride, or cruise, this event is for you!  Come get dusty!
