About the DUST BOWL 100

Indiana's First Gravel Century is back for another year!   After welcoming a sold-out field of 400 riders from 18 different states in 2021, we're making the 2022 Dust Bowl 100 even bigger and better and are excited to be opening registration to 600 participants!  

 

Traversing the wide open farm fields, century old bridges, and wooded creek valleys of west-central Indiana, the Dust Bowl 100 offers a scenic journey across some of the midwest's finest gravel roads.  The event is meant to be a challenging race for those that want to push themselves and see how quickly they can conquer all that the route throws at them.  BUT it’s also meant to be a rewarding and memorable experience for those that just want to unplug from the busyness of everyday life and explore roads that will refresh the soul.  Three distances are available (100 miles, 80 miles, and 44 miles), so no matter if you choose to race, ride, or cruise, this event is for you!  Come get dusty!

In 2021, the Dust Bowl 100 had the goal of expanding youth cycling opportunities in Indiana.  This was accomplished by donating 6 bicycles to students in the Eminence Community Schools system (thanks to Westfield Cyclesports for the help!), as well as by funding 4 full student scholarships for the Indiana Interscholastic Cycling League's 2021 season!  We are excited to again be partnering with these two great organizations in 2022! 

And, once again, all junior cyclists (18 & under) will receive discounted entry fees to the 2022 Dust Bowl 100.
