A SECRET STASH OF HIGH DESERT GRAVEL
Wild Horse Gravel showcases the unique high desertscape of Colorado’s Western Slope. Hosted on the luxury High Lonesome Ranch, cyclists will be treated to a country cook-out, campfire, cabins, camping – or glamping – and the best local music. In short, there will be a country hoedown to accompany the race.
In addition to being well hidden, 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.
Timed from start to finish, you are still encouraged to take the ride 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 stations.

CAMPING & LODGING
Ready for an overnight stay in a beautiful part of Colorado that you’ve never before experienced?
Our Wild West gravel goes deep into the backcountry, taking in the full gamut of conditions: smooth, rugged, rutty, rocky, sandy, steep. Be ready for a challenge!
Once off the saddle, stick around for a post-ride celebration, complete with an expo, food truck, massages, yard games, ranch activities, swimming, live music, beer garden and a country cookout.
Both the short and long course will be timed from start to finish. Cyclists are invited to take timing as seriously or as frivolously as they like — the name of the game is doing an adventure gravel ride with friends new and old.
