Dirty Kanza Primer

John Williams is hosting this "must do" gravel grinder. Take it from someone with experience, if you want to finish you got to train on what you are going to be racing on. This is a great opportunity to test your rig, experiment on the food that you will be consuming and lastly test your body.

The ride will start at the Council Grove middle school, 706 East Main Street Council Grove, KS 66846-1126. There are 3 places to fill up on supplies, Alma mile 40ish, Eskridge mile 65, and Americus mile around 90ish

Who: Name says it all, plus any Gravel Grinding addicts
What: A pre-ride of part of last year's course including the infamous little Egypt rd.
When: Sunday, May 15, 2011, 8:00 am start.
Where: Council Grove, KS
Why: Come train with a top 10 Trans Iowa finisher

Map is below. Cue sheets will be available.

When: Saturday, May 7, 2011, 9:00 am start.
Where: Leaving from Volker Bicycle Shop (18th Street, KCMO)

Map and updates first of the week.

We're leaving at 9:00 am sharp (yoga at 8:00am for those wishing to limber up before the big ride) , this is going to be a long ride. If you can't make it then (or want to do a shorter route), I suggest meeting us at EH Young park at 10:30-11:00 am.

Brett sends us his course map and promises a day full of gravel fun on Saturday. Cue sheets will be available on Saturday morning, but it would not hurt to bring you own -
