Nasty Pulaski Gravel Grind
Pulaski County’s Leg-Quivering Bicycle Race
October 2, 2021
Pulaski County’s Ozarks topography challenges Nasty Pulaski Gravel Grind cyclists during this leg-quivering bicycle race while providing stunning views of dramatic landscapes. The courses snake, careen, climb, plunge, and play hide-and-seek as they duel with the rugged terrain. This year’s gravel grind race will be held October 2nd.
65-Miles of Gravel Cycling
Nasty Pulaski’s signature course loops through 65-miles of Pulaski County, Missouri’s rustic backroads. Over 4,400 feet of elevation changes throughout the course tests your endurance. Riverside views and multiple stream crossings provide in-race rewards. This course will be one of the most satisfying finishes you will ever experience.
The 25-mile gravel grind, Half Nasty or the 10-mile gravel rides provide a taste of adventure with less of a commitment.
