25-mile route

Gravel Grinders

101-mile Bite the Bullet Challenge

The 101-mile Bite the Bullet Gravel Fondo is not for the weak-minded. This challenging but fun journey guides you to the town of Carr before heading West towards the mountains. Don't be fooled: the ride still covers over 4500 feet of elevation gain. Three Strava segments give you the opportunity to race for cash money, while getting to enjoy the rest of the adventure. Three rest-stops keep you full of fuel and water so you can journey-on. This route leave New Belgium Brewing at 7am. Check out the 2019 route.
