Crooked Gravel Bicycle Ride
July 24, 2021Rendezvous Event Center @ Hideaway Park, 78841 US-40, Winter Park, CO
High-altitude views abound in every direction. Crisp mountain air exhilarates the senses. And swarms of riders fire each other up. And that’s before the ride even starts!
Both the 65- and 93-mile routes get right down to business, taking riders from downtown Winter Park onto remote gravel roads and up into the mountains.
Crooked Gravel takes a few cues from an exploratory event the legendary Ron Kiefel put together a decade ago called Crooked Roubaix. Back before gravel bikes were really a thing, Kiefel and some friends set out on a 93-mile dirt-road adventure from Winter Park up into the high mountains on road bikes.
