Maple Leaf Gravel Grind

Saturday, October 23rd will mark the 3rd annual Maple Leaf Gravel Grind.  This will be an in-person ride in 2021 and we will offer 3 separate routes, a 16-, 35- and 70-mile option that will highlight the beautiful fall foliage in and around Baldwin City, KS.  Each rider will receive a custom medal and t-shirt included in their entry.  All races will be timed by the Timer Guys.     

Proceeds will be split between Prairie Paws Animal Shelter in Ottawa, KS and the Baldwin City Recreation Commission’s scholarship fund. 

For the 70 milers, we will offer a cash prize for the top 3 riders in each the male and female category:

1st place  $100
2nd place  $75
3rd place  $50

Ottawa Bike and Trail will once again be onsite offering light maintenance as well as swag for sale.  They will also be raffling a brand-new bike and tickets will go on sale closer to the event.  Prairie Paws Animal Shelter will be on site with animals available for adoption as well.
