The Big Ring Gravel Road Series is an annual gravel road racing series held in the Wichita, Kansas area. Cyclocross bikes are recommended but not required. Races will be held on dirt/gravel country roads. Surfaces may include but are not limited to: dirt, rocks, mud, gravel, dust, ice, snow, sand, and even pavement. The surfaces are varied and the terrain will make each race very challenging. The roads are open to traffic and wildlife. Each rider is expected to obey ALL traffic laws and laws of nature.
Points will be awarded to all riders that finish in each race. The rider with the highest point total at the end of the series will be declared the Big Ring Gravel Road Series Champion and will have their name engraved on the Big Ring Gravel Road Series trophy displayed in the Bicycle X-Change Shop. The Big Ring Gravel Road Series is a grass root type event, not a lot of money, amenities or spectators but it is big on fun and very challenging.
