Coming up: Flint Hills Express
A small eclectic event that has turned into a national level gravel festival, the Dirty Kanza weekend has a variety of events ranging from fun parties to the over the top challenge of the 200 miler.
Growing from under 50 participants in 2006 to over 2000 in 2017, this is a 'must do' if you're in to gravel.
