HESTIVAL is an all-inclusive, family & critter-friendly camp-out weekend! Spend nights dreaming amongst the apples in Big B’s Delicious Orchards and daytimes full of activities, excursions, talented live music, fireside chats, cider tastings, stargazing, and delicious food & drink. HESTIVAL-goers will have day trip options to mountain bike, hike in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, or simply kick back and explore the local orchards before the group reconvenes for a daily Big B’s Cider at Happy Hour before a headliner band- Raising Appalachia- will take the stage and dance under the stars of the new moon.
Back for 2021, Wild Horse Gravel showcases the unique high desertscape of the Western Slope. Hosted on the luxury High Lonesome Ranch, riders will be treated to a country cook-out, campfire, cabins, camping – or glamping – and the best local music. In short, there will be a Colorado country party to accompany the ride.In addition to being hidden well, well off the beaten path, The High Lonesome Ranch and its surrounding area isn’t open to riding year-round, so participants benefit from exclusive access to this secret stash of wild-west gravel. You’ll only be disappointed if you were hoping for a bunch of auto traffic on the route.We have two routes to choose from, and riders can decide which one on the day – even mid-ride. Feeling strong when you get back to the ranch? Then turn and head back out for another lap. Feeling like 45 miles is plenty? Then rest your legs at the ranch. Totally your call.
There are two timed segments that you can take as seriously or as frivolously as you like — the name of the game is doing a big gravel ride with friends new and old. Even those that hammer away at maximum speed will stop to regroup, taking in the views and the delicious local goodies at the well-stocked feed station. As with all Roll Massif Sportives, you’re going to want to bring your camera.
Race the sun and gear up for the Sunrise to Sunset trail race in Winter Park, Colorado this summer. The 12-hour event is all about balancing camaraderie and challenge. Ride the singletrack course as a relay or race solo.
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.
