Dirty Kanza Promotions was founded in 2006 by Jim Cummins, with the assistance of fellow cycling enthusiast Joel Dyke. At that time, gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community. However, Jim had grown up in the Flint Hills of east central Kansas and had been riding gravel for decades. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events… and convinced the Flint Hills had the best gravel to be found anywhere in the world, Jim and Joel decided to create Dirty Kanza 200.

Rebecca's Private Idaho is your ticket to the wild, rugged Idaho that few people know. Ride 100 miles with mountain bike endurance champion Rebecca Rusch on grueling gravel roads, through canyons, over summits, and across high mountain basins. When you're done, expect a healthy dose of western hospitality and the good feeling that comes from supporting charities like the Idaho National Interscholastic Cycling Association, Wood River Bike Coalition, People for Bikes, and World Bicycle Relief.
The World Famous Rock Cobbler is a stupidly hard ride bordering on a race. The Pebbler is less stupidly hard but still a true challenge. As always we are passionate and driven to showcase roads, dirt trails, gravel and a VERY challenging route not yet ridden, not yet tamed.
BIG CLIMBS, STUNNING VIEWS, groomed fire roads, rutty, rocky dirt roads, creek crossings, (could be wet, probably be dry), exposed single track and a sweeping ten mile road descent down from Rose Valley back to Ojai. This year the ride will also give you a first hand look at the territory scorched by the Thomas Fire.
