Hate to ride gravel on a road ride?
Take the Turley Hill Road shuttle and shave another 5.3 miles off. Your ride is now 67.5 miles.
Want even less?
Ride the shuttle between White City and Dwight on Highway 4. This is a perfectly good road for riding, but if you want to shave miles, taking this bus eliminates all highway miles for the day. Riding the shuttle bus from White City to Dwight reduces the ride to 57.8 miles.
You can catch a ride anytime on the course to reduce mileage further.
Party at Historic St. Joseph's Church and Cemetery
The gravel ride ends at the church. The charter bus will return gravel riders to Manhattan from the church, leaving hourly, between 3 and 6.
Plan to stick around the church for the post-ride party. We have the Vista Food Truck, the Iowa Beer bus and a band to make this a fun-filled stop.
Each day has beer stops. We donate the beer to communities and organizations hosting the pass-through stops. Our riders get to sample great beer at every stop, and the organizations benefit from the generous contributions from our riders.
Last year, our donations benefited the 4th of July fireworks celebration in White City. This year, we return to White City and other fun stops. Friday's beer stops are -
St. Joseph's Historic Church and Cemetery
Be sure to stop and spend some time at all of these spots. Our community partners roll out the red carpet for the Kandango Nation.
