Gravel Ride for Maisie's Pride

It's time to let the secret out.

The Flint Hills are the gravel mecca of the midwest and Eskridge Kansas is surrounded by it. Beautiful scenery and epic vistas await you and your bicycle. But first, you've got to get on your bike and get out there. Infamous sections of road like Little Egypt, "THAT" road, and many more will challenge your legs, your tires, and your fortitude. Did we mention the hills? You'll love them. 

Maisie's got something for everyone. 53 mile tour. 105 mile race, even a 105 mile relay team and a 5k RUN. Men, Women, Single Speeders, Crazy Coasters, FAT Bikers, and Juniors are welcome. Get more details.


I think it’s just your own attitude. You think you can do it, usually one way or another you can get it done, and if you can’t do it, you won’t do it.
— Maisie DeVore


Gravel Ride for Maisie’s Pride has always brought me back to some of the best gravel roads in the Flint Hills. Waubaunsee county is beautiful and ruthless. Mix in Ryan’s unending enthusiasm, sharp rocks, steep hills, and a fantastic fund raising cause and you’ve got the recipe for a super day on your bike.

Uncle Dudley likes to make his course too easy. I complain every year. I also like sleeping on his couch.

I love the spirit of this gravel ride. Get to know Maisie’s story. Her determination and persistence is exactly what you’ll need to finish the beautifully brutal course Ryan puts together.

Get to know Maisie

Everyone thought her dream of a pool in Eskridge, Kansas was just a fantasy. They called her "can lady" and "crazy Maisie." She didn't give up after 30 years and is now known as Amazing Maisie.

When I first came to Eskridge in 2002, everyone was pretty stoked about this pool.  I didn't see the big deal.  Don't all towns have pools?  In fact they do not!  It turns out that the fact that Eskridge had a pool was special.
