24 Hours of Cumming

Online registration for this event will open on 1/25 at 11:59 AM US/Central.

Welcome to 24 HRS of Cumming!

Welcome to the #midwestsbestgravelfest! Now in our 7th year, the event has become a Gravel grinder jubilation with a helluva bike race thrown in! Bands all afternoon and evening, Saturday. Amazing food, drinks, bonfire and boogie! Oh yeah, almost forgot about the bike race.

This gritty bike race will take place entirely on the gravel roads of central Iowa. It will be one of the toughest endurance biking challenges in the United States. Riders will have 24 hours to cover 400k (that's 248 miles to you and me) and nearly 15,000 feet of elevation gain. That's a challenge for even the gnarliest of grinders! We also offer a 100k solo and NEW this year will be a 200k solo! Not ready to tackle this beast solo? Take it on with a team of 2 or 4 people. To keep this beast from getting out of hand we will cap each race so register now!

Registration will get you a piece of all of this

- Hat and socks for all 400k solo participants
- Choice of hat or socks for all other distances (design coming soon)
- A stacked SWAG table
