Saturday, Sunday, September 6-7 starting at 8am
NoCo Gravelo is a semi-supported bicycle gravel ride and revival west of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, and it's FREE to participate. Rides start around 8:00 am Saturday morning, and we'll gather around the campfire for food, beverage and stories as folks finish the ride throughout the day. Bring a tent to camp and take in the stars with us Saturday night! There will be some food and beverage there, but it is primarily a BYOB event. Large, primitive campsite (no toilets or running water), so be prepared to dig holes and bring your own water.
There are two loops that both start and end at the campsite. The short loop is approximately 24 miles with 3000 ft of climbing, and the long loop is approximately 56 miles with 6500 ft of climbing. Both loops top out at 10,900 ft elevation. Neither loop is for beginners, as there are long, steep climbs at altitude involved with both. There is a gnarly descent (for a gravel ride) that is also part of both loops.
If anyone doesn't want to ride, but still wants to be part of the fun, we'd love it if you want to come help out! We need some volunteers to run a couple water/first aid stations, too, so please let me know if you're interested in that.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer for the event, shoot an email over to email@example.com.
