Gravel Ride for Maisie's Pride is a fund raiser for the community pool in Eskridge, KS (Maisie's Pool). Maisie Devore saved aluminum cans for 30 years to get the pool built, so it means a lot to the community.
The main course is 100 miles of beautiful and brutal Flint Hills gravel. There's also a 50ish mile course, and a 20ish mile course. They'll provide fixed sags with snacks and water, plus roving sags to haul tired/exhausted riders back to town. The ride will start at the Eskridge fire station at 0700, and ends when the last rider crosses the finish line. Lunch will be served as riders return. This isn't just another gravel grinder; it's a tradition.
Here's a short video explaining the cause:
