Spotted Horse Cycling


Thanks to everyone who joined us yesterday for the sixth annual Spotted Horse Gravel Ultra at the Madison County Winery. For the first time in a few years, the weather did not disappoint! It was a great day to be outside and on a bike.



Distance - 200, 150 or 75 miles

Full course: 200 miles
Short course: 150 miles
Quarter Horse: 75 miles

NEW FOR 2021 - The Quarter Horse - A 75 mile loop!!

Spotted Horse Gravel Ultra is a self-supported gravel and dirt road adventure, and no crews are allowed on the course. There will be opportunities to resupply at convenience stores, and the distances between them will be communicated to all registered participants.

There are categories for open, single speed, fat bike, tandem.

If you are considering longer self supported gravel events like Iowa Wind and Rock, this is a good place to test your gear and your mettle. If you’ve completed multiple 100 km or 100 mile rides and are looking for your next challenge, you will find it here.

Visit the Spotted Horse website for detailed registration and location information.


Hilly, scenic, and somewhat remote, with many turns and few flat or straight sections. Expect dirt roads, bridges, a water crossing, and maybe some hike-a-bike sections. Parts of the course will be remote, with limited cell service. Other areas will be residential farmland, but all should be low-traffic, scenic Iowa roads with fall foliage on display
