Distances: 550 km
Difficulty: Extreme terrain with frequent steep hills and long sustained climb

This is a 550-mile bikepacking ride that starts and ends in Emporia Kansas and goes into southeast Kansas, into the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. This ride is almost exclusively on gravel roads, and is entirely self-supported. There are no entry fees, support vehicles, or SAG stops, but you may find a trail angel or two waiting along the route, but certainly don't count on them. Tour Divide rules, as always, apply, and those rules can be seen here:

Riders should absolutely feel free to challenge the course at any time via an Individual Time Trial (ITT) but this event is for the grand depart. GPS tracking will be available (but is not required except for record-seakers) and the sign-up information for Trackleaders will go out about a month prior to ride-day. This course is designed to challenge beginners as well as seasoned bikepackers alike. You don't even have to bikepack, as you could easily hotel-tour this route as well. This is a choose-your-own-adventure ride - some people ride it as fast as they can, while others prefer to tour the route at a more leisurely pace. All riders are welcome, and we would love to have ya!
