Both the 50K and 100K rides will start at the Farmer’s Market in downtown Greenwood and head out on the Palusha Creek levee. Just past the airport is where the two routes will take a different twist. The 50K route will return on the flat north levee while the 100K heads into the hills of Carroll County for a bit more adventure of rural homesteads and farm roads.

The Davis Phinney Foundation is a non-profit with a mission to help people with Parkinson's live well with the disease. It was founded in 2004 by Davis Phinney, the former professional road bicycle racer and Olympic medal winner. Phinney was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson's disease in 2000 at the age of 40. DPF provides essential information, practical tools and inspiration to people living with Parkinson’s. G3 is supporting this cause by donating a portion of every G3 hoodie sold to fund early-phase, innovative research that focuses on exercise, speech, movement and other factors that affect quality of life.
Greenwood Gravel Grind has partnered with Tallahatchie Flats - Join us to experience history on the river!
Located 3 miles north of Greenwood, Mississippi on the banks of the Tallahatchie River (of “ Ode to Billie Joe ” fame) on a Delta cotton plantation, these two to four room dwellings are located in a beautiful landscape overlooking a bend in the river, and are preserved examples of the small sharecropper shacks that once dotted the Delta countryside where so many great Blues artists were born and raised and wandered.
The Tallahatchie Flats will also be HQ for the Greenwood Gravel Grind (G3), including Packet Pickup Friday night and the Post-Ride Party that will surely make it into the history books. The Flats are the only official lodging partner for our inaugural ride and we have reserved all the shacks for G3 participants, but there are only six! Reservations open TODAY. Because there are only six, there is a 2 night minimum. To reserve your spot, send an email to stoke@Ordinaryepics.com with the shack you’d like to reserve and the names of the occupants. That’s all it takes to stay in one of these historic dwellings and be in the middle of all the Greenwood Gravel Grind action!
Click on the button below to be taken to the Flats website and view pictures of each shack. Remember, these rooms show booked online because we have reserved them for G3 participants. To make a reservation, email email@example.com with your dates, preferred shack and names of occupants. That’s all it takes - we can’t wait to see you there!
Post Ride Party
After spending some time spinning in the beautiful Delta countryside enjoying the country roads, you’ll be ready for some food and fellowship. Have we got the place for you! Tallahatchie Flats will be an oasis for our G3 riders with a family style cookout to include burgers, brats, baked beans, and potato salad, along with options for our vegetarian and vegan riders. The cookout will begin at 2 pm, courtesy of Greenwood Market Place.
Beer - name beer sponser, etc
