The third annual Cannonball 550 “Second Volley” is a 550 mile gravel bikepacking event that starts and ends in Emporia Kansas. We’ll meet in front of the Granada Theater and take off at 7am. This goes through the heart of the Flinthills, so bring your climbing legs!

This is a ride, not a race…but if you happen to finish first…

There is no entry fee, there are no support stations, you’re on your own. Tour Divide rules apply; no outside support that isn’t available to all riders.
