It's going to be a great day in Northeast Missouri for a gravel ride benefiting great cause!

The VCVC Gravel Grinder has three course offerings for each level of cyclist from the gravel beginner to gravel enthusiast. All routes begin and end in downtown Macon, Missouri and take you through our beautiful state park, meandering the county's farmland, and around a few surrounding smaller communities! You're sure to enjoy the views just as much as the challenge of rural NEMO gravel.

It's important to us, the sponsors and organizers, to give back to our community and the people in it. Northeast Missouri is home to kind, big-hearted citizens and we hope you'll come out and show them some love by coming to this year's event!

Over the last three years we have been able to donate over $5,850 to the Macon County Emergency Food Pantry, let's DO MORE this year!!!
