Does gravel road riding sound like fun, but 200 miles is just a little too much of a good thing? Do you have a rider in DK200, and you’re wondering what you can do that morning to fill some time? The Dirty Kanza Lite may be just for you. The DK Lite is a gravel road “fun ride”, intended for the recreational/fitness-based rider. With 20-mile and 50-mile options, you can choose the distance that is right for you. The DK Lite will start and finish in front of the historic Granada Theater in downtown Emporia, Kansas… just like the DK200. But unlike the DK200, you can finish your ride and get cleaned up in time for lunch. Online registration is open now. You can also register the day of the event, but if you sign-up now, you can also purchase a coveted DK Lite T-Shirt. Shirts will not be available for purchase the day of the ride. So go online now and sign up. We’ll see you Saturday, June 2nd.
Well, registration for DK200 has come and gone. WOW!!! Was that quick!!! We suspect many of you are now trying to determine your hotel options. Here is a list of Emporia, Kansas area lodging providers who have graciously agreed to offer special pricing for DK200 participants. These hotels will likely fill up quickly. So you might want to make your reservations right away. Be sure to mention Dirty Kanza to receive your discount.
