Gravel bike racing gaining popularity in Mississippi

Gravel riding, also know as adventure riding, is an increasingly popular form of cycling in Mississippi that combines elements of the road- and mountain-biking. Rides and races take place on unpaved back roads lending to a scenic adventure you can't with any other form of cycling. It takes cycling to the next level and provides riders with exciting discoveries.

The Greenwood-Leflore County Chamber of Commerce, the host of the Bikes, Blues and Bayous event, has partnered with Ordinary Epics to put on the 2nd annual Greenwood Gravel Grind. This ride builds on the strengths of the hugely successful Bikes, Blues & Bayous event, and pairs the gravel roads of the neighboring Carroll County hills with our fast and flat Delta terrain.
