Elrod's Cirque is a self-supported gravel course through the Flint Hills in south central Kansas. Riders will begin in beautiful downtown Winfield before enjoying backcountry gravel roads throughout the southern Flint Hills. We suggest taking a moment to appreciate the historic stone bridges and beautiful scenery throughout Cowley County. All riders will stop at Wheat State Wine Co. for refueling, including drop bag service.
The 100 mile course is the crown jewel of Elrod's Cirque, taking riders through the far reaches of Cowley County. Featuring over 4,000 ft of climbing this course is as rugged as it is beautiful.
If that sounds like a bit too much fun, there's also a 50 and 25 mile option. Depending on what kind of day you'd like, the 50 mile course can be fast or you can make a day of it and ride to enjoy the sights.
The 25 mile option will travel over well groomed gravel roads and a bit of pavement. This course is suitable for beginners, families and anyone else who's looking for a good excuse to get outside.
Riders will all start in front of Walnut Valley Outpost before making their way out of town. All riders will venture to Wheat State Wine Co. (where the 50 and 100 milers can test out their technical skills) for midride refreshments and essentials. We'll end at Ladybird Brewing for a post ride brew (21+) and a good time. Plan on bringing your lawn chair to relax after your ride!
Get excited to grind some gravel, experience the beauty of the southern Flint Hills and kick back to enjoy the perfect day.
