This will be the 5th Annual Cannonball, and we will be riding the original Cannonball route so some folks can get their revenge. Of course, feel free to ride the course anytime, this is just a group start if that’s your thing. ITT’s are always welcome, though!

This is a 550-mile unsupported bike-packing drop-ride on gravel roads. There are stretches of upwards of 100 miles with no services or supply, so be prepared! Tour Divide rules apply, but we will leave it to the riders for any discrepancies. There will be no support on the course. If you need anything, you will either have to bring it with you or purchase it along the way. The only checkpoints are the starting line and the finish line. As stated, this is a drop-ride, so feel free to ride it as fast as you want or take your time and tour it. It’s a really great route and will take you through lots of small town towns and rural areas of Kansas that most people don’t get to see.
