Join us on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 9 am and discover this gravel gem in the hills of Ionia County. With road names like Bliss and Ivan (as in terrible), this gravel race offers something for every level of cyclist.
The Dirty Thirty gravel bike race course consists of almost 90% gravel roads, the largest percentage of gravel compared to other gravel grinder bike races in West Michigan. The distance of the long course is, you guessed it, 30 miles. The short course is 14 miles.
The Dirty Thirty events will start and finish in downtown Saranac, just a short jaunt from Grand Rapids, MI. The first half of the course heads east into the open farm country, offering a combination of gently rolling hills and pancake flat gravel roads. The second half of the course brings you west into a hillier and more forested section of the course.
