Solstice 100 Gravel Race
Jun

7:00 AM07:00

Solstice 100 Gravel Race

The Solstice 100 Gravel Grinder is a newer midwest gravel grinder that starts and ends in Malcolm NE. This ride will journey through the communities of Raymond, Valparaiso, Loma, Brainard, Dwight, Bee, Garland and Malcolm. You will experience all kinds of gravel roads from flat to hilly and super hilly. And just because we know you want adventure, we will even throw in a few MMR's. Cross your fingers it doesn’t rain. The field will be limited to 100 riders.

And new this year, we will also be offering a shorter option, a 50+ mile gravel grinder, called the "Solar Fiddy" But, the field will be limited to 50 riders total for the Fiddy. It will follow alot of the same roads as the southern half of the Solstice route. There will be one checkpoint at the halfway point, with limited SAG support.

The Solstice is a self supportive ride, so plan on bringing enough water and supplies to get you in between checkpoints.... roughly 30-40 miles apart. We will have water and very minimal SAG support at the checkpoints and one basic tool: a tire pump. If you want, you can stop into the local convenience stores or bars and do your own thing. This is your ride, you do what you have to do to make it to the end. You can’t cheat though. There will be checkpoints you must go through to be a Solstice 100 Finisher and earn your finishers patch! And if you want to quit… well, this is your ride, so you will need to find a ride home.

We called this event the "Solstice" for a reason.....it’s two days after the longest day of the year, so it’s gonna be HOT! Hot AND you will be traveling 50-100 miles on your own, so prepare yourself.

EVENT SPONSORS, ORGANIZERS, PROMOTERS, STAFF, and anyone having anything to do with this event ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY OR WELL BEING. We cannot stress this strongly enough…YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU!

Each participant is considered to be on a private excursion and remains solely responsible for any accidents in which he or she may be involved. No responsibility can be accepted for participants becoming lost, stranded, injured… or worse.

Be courteous and respectful at all times. Participants must obey all city, county, and state laws, and “Rules of the Road”. Each participant is required to have a clear front headlamp and a red tail light for the duration of the event. At race start and if continuing after dark participants are required to have a clear front headlamp capable of navigating in the dark (minimum 500 lumens) and a red tail light. Be careful and take care of yourself! Your safety is up to you. Bring plenty of food and hydration. Cellular service may not always be available but we highly recommend carrying a cell phone to contact someone in case of an emergency. Carry spare inner tubes and inflation system.

$45 Registration Fee Includes:

  • Entry into the Event
  • Custom Awards to the 1st Finishers in Each Category
  • Embroidered Solstice 100 Event Patch for all 100 mile Finishers
  • Finishers Award for all Solar Fiddy Finishers

Loess Hills Enduro

About the Ride

Whether you’re a local looking to explore Iowa’s hidden gravel treasures or are coming in from out of town for this epic ride, you’ll grow to learn the Midwestern belief that with hard work and perseverance, good things will happen. Loess hills Enduro is endurance Gravel event in western Iowa.

This year’s we renamed Good life Gravel to Loess Hills Enduro. The course will offer 100-KM route – following an unsanctioned, mass-start format. There will be an epic food and beverages at Start/Finish Area provided by local caterer, chef Jenn Beebe. As if this event wasn’t already awesome enough – proceeds are going to a great cause, supporting local junior racers at regional and national races.

What to Expect

The Loess Hills Enduro brings the Midwestern spirit alive with a unique, challenging and scenic ride – with your choice of carefully-selected 100-km route tracing through the area’s signature gravel roads. The courses showcase the rugged terrain once followed by famous explorers Lewis & Clark and indigenous settlers headed down the Oregon Trail. You’ll experience where the West began through the rolling hills of prairie grass, cornfields, rustic barns and river bluffs. There are a few carefully placed refreshment stations along the way, but remember, this is a self-supported event so come prepared.

Please Note this is Self Supported event. You are traversing open roads without outside aid or assistance. There will be only one  fully stocked aid station with food and beverages on course.

Robidoux Quick & Dirty

Robidoux Quick & Dirty

The 3rd run of the Robidoux Quick and Dirty will be held on May 19, 2018. This is a 75 mile gravel race held in Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska, and is run through the heart of the Wildcat Hills. You can race it and gather a cash prize, or you can take your time and make it an adventure ride. Either way, the route takes you through piney woods and high plains grasslands nestled in a bluff system left behind by a retreating sea 70 million years ago. Look for fossils and cows; this is open range country. You won’t be the first to test your mettle through these parts. You’ll be riding on the Oregon Trail for much of the route, retracing the very steps of the Western immigrants. The race is named after Antione Robidoux, who built a trading post during the 1840s, selling tack and grog to immigrants as they crossed over Robidoux Pass on the way to their demise or Oregon, which ever came first. In later years immigrants struggled over the more direct Mitchell Pass. You’ll be riding over both.

Lauf True Grit Demo Days

Lauf is coming to Lincoln, home of Gravel Worlds 2018 presented by Lauf True Grit, and we want you to ride their bikes!

This is the chance to find out for yourself how the Lauf performs on our own gravel and dirt roads and to feel how that funky fork really does smooths out just about any road. From 9am to 6pm both May 5th and 6th we'll be at the Wilderness Park trail head on Pioneers Blvd.

May 5th is also Tour of Dirt Roads, a favorite ride put on by the Pirate Cycling League. So a good day to explore the dirt roads then ride a bike purposely built them.

Tour of Dirt Roads

Pirate Cycling League’s Tour Of Dirt Roads

Each Spring, Pirate Cycling League has mapped out a course incorporating some of the less-traveled gravel and minimum maintenance roads (MMR’s) in the surrounding counties and set aside a day to celebrate them with our friends. This years event will TENTATIVELY take place on Saturday, May 6.

This year’s route will touch many of the same—really awesome—roads as last years’. Also like last year, we’ll depart from Taggart Park (the city park) in Palmyra. Otoe and Johnson Counties are where we’ll spend a great deal of the day; and they contain some real gems: dirt roads, burned out towns, old architecture, rolling hills, and more.

It’s not a race, it’s an adventure. And we’d love to have you join us – everyone is welcome. There’s no entry fee (which is one reason we offer an unconditional money-back guarantee that you’ll have a great time).

But you will want to come prepared with all the gear you need (it is springtime in Nebraska, after all) and some doubloons (or some currency) to use as barter for replenishment – and for post-ride (last year we confirmed  that grog DOES flow in the quiet hamlet of Palmyra).

Wagon Train February Sub24

Wagon Train February Sub24

As part of the bivy-a-month challenge, February's Sub24 (less then 24 hour bike camping trip) will be Wagon Train out by Hickman. Plan is to leave the shop at 1pm, take mostly city bike trails out to 110th street, then it's gravel all the way to the lake. We're thinking of making a BBQ/beverage stop in Hickman before heading into camp. Like our last Sub24, and because it's February, we'll have extra fire wood, water, and assorted beverages waiting for us at camp, but you are responsible for you, ie: you will pack what gear and food you want to bring.

And being that it will be February in Nebraska, if the weather for that weekend is just too scary, we have the weekend of the 24th as a backup. But extended forecast shows it to be pretty good for the 17th/18th.

Any questions on bike camping, packing a bike, or gear, come on over to the shop or The Moose's Tooth Outdoor Co. We're here to help!
