Transportation & Lodging

Travel to Emporia and lodging in Emporia is up to you to figure out. We will provide transportation to the Bleeding Kansas Gravelduro event in Manhattan, KS.

Both the Kansas City Airport (MCI) and the Wichita Airport (ICT) are great fly-in options. We can assist athletes in coordinating with each other to share rides from airports as we get closer to camp. There will be an FTP test Thursday afternoon and if that is something you hope to do, plan to be ready to ride by 3pm on Thursday the 19th.

Bike Shipping

Gravel City Adventure & Supply Co. is the official adventure retailer of DK Promotions.

Ship your bike to Gravel City Adventure & Supply Co. for professional assembly.  GCAS will assemble the bike as well as tune all parts to make sure you are prepared to succeed at camp. Assembly includes front and rear derailleur adjustment, wheel truing, brake adjustment, along with checking chain, cassette, and brake pads for wear.  GCAS will provide a complete package, so when you tackle the training rides, you do it without any mechanical difficulty.  Having a professional mechanic go through your bike can be the difference between a good and bad ride. Additionally, GCAS will professionally repack your bike for you and ship it. The training camp cost for build and repack is $100. (Shipping charge extra.)
Please ship your bike so it arrives AT LEAST three days before training camp starts- that way if a part is damaged in shipping there is time to order a replacement if necessary, and you won’t miss a minute of riding.  Gravel City Adventure & Supply Company is excited to help support DK training camp and is excited to see everyone.  GCAS: “Building community one adventure at a time.”
