UNBOUND Gravel was founded in 2006 at a time when gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events, we knew that the beauty of this region is best explored on two wheels, and with that, the 200 mile “race” took shape. Our event resides in a region of Kansas called the Flint Hills, and cyclists around the globe have transcended upon our roads to tackle the hilly, tire-shredding, sun-baked gravel we’re infamous for.

Initially, we had no idea just how much this whole gravel grinding thing would grow. And honestly, it wasn’t what motivated us. What drives our team is providing life-enriching experiences and as this event has grown, so have we. 

Bracket/Division Details & Fees:

  1. UNBOUND 200

    From the moment you feel the crunch of the Flint Hills gravel under your tires, you’ll know you’re in a special place. The UNBOUND Gravel 200 is the marquee event that has earned Emporia, Kansas the name Gravel City, USA. This event will bring to life that indomitable spirit that lives within each and every one of you. Along your 200 mile journey, you’ll travel to the furthest depths of your psyche and unravel the reasons behind why it is you’re here in the first place. So many challenges will be thrown at you during your day in the saddle, and UNBOUND Gravel 200 gives you all the opportunities to find just what you are made of. As you work through the beautiful journey through the Kansas Prairie, we know for certain that you’ll be a different person when you cross that finish line. And we will be there to welcome you home.

  6. UNBOUND Gravel XL

    While our UNBOUND Gravel 200 sets the stage for the big events of the weekend, the UNBOUND Gravel XL offers up that solo pursuit you just may be looking for.

If your penchant for pain is matched only by your sense of adventure you’re in the right company. Over the course of 350 miles, you’ll challenge yourself, you’ll inspire yourself, hell, you’ll downright hate yourself. But you got here for a reason and your potential knows no boundary.
