    Calling all Mountain Bikers, Gravel Grinders, Cyclocross Enthusiast, and Fat Bike Fanatics

     It's RACE TIME!

    Saturday, May 5th, 2018 @ 10:00am

    Loudonville, Ohio

    For the first time the Black Fork is a Race!  This early season gravel road race and ride will test your spirit, legs, and lungs and is perfect for Mountain Bikers, Cyclocross Racers, Adventure Cyclist and Gravel Junkies itching for a challenge after a long winter of spinning on the trainer.  Participants will get a glimpse of some of the same route as the legendary Mohican 100 National Ultra Endurance Mountain Bike Race and will have an adventure you just can’t get on pavement.  The three route options near Loudonville, Ohio are almost entirely on gravel roads and have varying degrees of climbing.   The 23 mile route has just three big climbs, lots of rollers and great views for participants who may be new to gravel grinding or don't have the legs and lungs to tackle the longer, more challenging distances.  Our original 30 mile route has seven long, steep climbs that will test your strength, fast and furious downhills that will make you pucker, and an occasional smooth roller that will put a smile on your face.  And our 54 mile race route is for the advanced adventure junkie who just can't get enough gravel.  It has 10 big climbs that will test the strongest racers.  Regardless of which route you choose, none are easy so you'll definitely have earned your beer at the finish!

    For the 54 mile race, the top three overall finishers will receive a cash payout and award medals.  The top three finishers in each age category will receive recognition at the awards ceremony.  We also have a King and Queen of the Mountain Award for the first guy and gal to reach the top of our second major climb (on Big Hill Road).

    Go to for more details and BikeReg to register on-line.


    What people said about the 2016 event:

    "Now that was a gravel ride, really tough but a blast just the same. Hope to do this well run event next year. We need more of these."

    "Great job with this ride! Well organized, good course marking, great beer and roads!"

    "Really fun ride! Can't wait for next year"

    "Great event out in Holmes County, OH @ the Black Fork Gravel Grinder. If you missed it, this is one to put on your list for 2017!"

    "Thank you Matt Simpson and Jay Clipse for hosting such a great event. The 30 mile ride kicked my butt. Looking forward to next year!"

    "Loved the route, hard technical gravel, and a beer handed to me as I crossed the finish line"

    "I just finished the Black Fork Gravel Grinder and highly recommend it for next year. It was very well run, good communication and course maps/signs. Hills were tough but good training ride for Michigan Mountain Mayhem. Winter Warriors should seriously consider."

    "It was great. And the BBQ dinner was really good, plus free beer!!!"

    Whiskey Rebellion Gravel 50/100K

    The Whiskey Rebellion Gravel Ride will be a fun and friendly tour through historic PA landscapes of Washington County. Washington County was the site of a farmer rebellion against the first U.S. tax levied in 1791 -- a tax on whiskey. Today, Washington County prospers from gas exploration and the country roads we'll be riding are peppered with old and new farms along with gas pipelines. Expect roads to vary from little gravel to big, gnarly new gravel and from hilly to rolling. There will be one rest stop during the 100K, as we will be looping through our starting point to finish off the first 50K and continue on with our 100K, which will also be looping back to finish right where we started. The entire ride will be lightly/sparsely supported (due to lack of cell phone coverage). The terrain will be challenging but, we will have a few different paced groups so that everyone has a group.

    Funk Bottoms Gravel will once again challenge cyclists to Ohio’s Toughest Gravel Grinder. Two races, one brutal course!  A one lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double lap 200K race. The course will take riders through some of Ohio's most scenic roads.  On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,000 feet of vertical climbing! Road conditions are a mix of paved, chip & seal, gravel, and dirt roads. The Funk 100K/200K is a self-supported event and riders must be prepared for any mechanical and nutritional needs. No outside support is allowed. Our good friends at Hammer Nutrition will once again be providing support with Hammer HEED before the race, and at the secret checkpoint. As usual the course will have sections from the previous year’s races along with some new sections.   This is a cue sheet race. The course is NOT marked, and the roads are open to normal traffic in the area.  Expect to encounter cars, trucks, horses, buggies, farm equipment, ATV's, buzzards, road kill, and the occasional farm dog at any given time. Rain or shine, it’s Funk time!
