Guru's Gravel Grinders

Guru's Gravel Grinders is a series of organized gravel grinder rides around the Kansas City area. These rides are Show-N-Go type rides, and are intended to be base mile rides. Unless the weather absolutely prevents a bike from moving forward due to snow or ice, the rides are on. Each week there will be a different ride leader hosting the event.

These are free, all-comers, non-organized, "training" experiences. Whoever shows up, rides. (We just happen to be riding in the same direction at the same time). You are responsible for yourself and your own safety. Participation in these training rides at your own risk, that there will be no "aid stations" or support available except where provided by you. There will be no route markings, no course marshals and no medical personnel in attendance. Please adhere to all traffic laws.

Visit the Guru's Gravel Grinders web site for the full schedule of rides.
