Pine Island Gravel Odyssey

The Fools Gold Gravel Grinder: This is the shortest ride in our Gold Rush race and is a great place to start if you are new to gravel endurance riding/racing. This ride is all about the fun and challenge of just finishing, and everyone who makes the cut-offs and crosses the finish line will get a Fools Gold finishers award!  In the Fools Gold, we give you more time to finish the race, with a generous 7mph average needed to make the first checkpoint/aid station. This route may be our shortest in distance, but don't let it 'Fool ya', as it is a challenging 45 mile, single-loop course. It consists of 3,800 ft of climbing and will be a challenge, no matter your fitness level.  The 5 mile lead out, and last 13 miles down Spearfish Canyon, are the only pavement on the course. 
 The Gold Dust Gravel Grinder: This ride is all about the fun and challenge of just finishing, and everyone who makes the cut-offs, makes the check-point, and crosses the finish line will get a Gold Dust finishers award!  In the Gold Dust, we give you more time to reach each checkpoint, than the more difficult Gold Rush and Mother Lode routes.  This route is a challenging 70 mile, single-loop course. The 5 mile lead out, and last 13 miles down Spearfish Canyon, are the only pavement on the course.  There is 4,500+ ft. of steady climbing on this course and it is a challenge, no matter your fitness level. The Gold Rush Gravel Grinder is the Black Hills Premier Gravel Road Race. It is a  110 mile long, single-loop route that will take you through the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. The event is intended to be a fun, yet challenging, endurance gravel road race/ride that will use open public-access gravel and dirt roads, through the Black Hills National forest and into Wyyyooommming!  The course will consist of mostly gravel, some dirt, possible mud, and a bit of pavement (gasp!), while rolling over open prairie, meandering through beautiful canyons with flowing creeks, exploring the deep forest, and  climbing to several spectacular vistas. This race is intended for people familiar to gravel riding that can average a minimum 10mph pace. This is a semi-supported race due to limited access to water and cell reception, with over 7,000 ft. of climbing! ?The Mother Lode: If you are into more of a self supported, ultra endurance, adventure type of race, then this is the race for you!  The Mother Lode race is not for beginners, as it is a very challenging ride.  You must have completed the Gold Rush Race, or a similar race of at least 100 miles, before registering for this event! It is an ultra, 210 mile ride that will take you on a tour through both the Northern and Southern Black Hills of South Dakota.
