SECTION 1: Overview
+ EVENT OVERVIEW (Click Here)
Brand new for 2019, 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 simply isn’t open to riding year-round, so participants benefit from exclusive access to this secret stash of top-shelf 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? Go long. Feeling like 50 miles is plenty? Totally your call.
Held early in the season, Wild Horse Gravel seeks to blow out the cobwebs and blow riders’ minds with a full spread of gravel terrain. There will be timed segments that riders can take as seriously or as frivolously as they 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 stations. As with all Roll Massif Sportives, you’re going to want to bring your camera.
