Welcome to the second riding of the Sandy Bottoms Gravel Grinder! This ride is sponsored by the Bicycle Advisory Committee at Truman State University and is a partnership with the City of Kirksville, the Kirksville Downtown Improvement Committee, and the Forest Lake Area Trail System. It’s also part of our Bike Festival in Kirksville as a lead in event to the Kirksville Criterium. Thanks for riding with us!
We offer three routes. The first is a 25 mile ride with moderate terrain, ideal for people trying out their first gravel grinder. Those looking for a next level challenge can do our 50 mile ride and take in a bit more of our beautiful county. Finally, we have a 100 mile ride filled with great views and plenty of rigor.
