12-mile Safe Routes to School family route

We'll be exploring some gravel at one of Fort Collins' most picturesque fun to ride parks, complete with a rest stop for families to take in the adventure and activities to explore along the way. Check out the route.

25-mile scavenger hunt 

Journey beyond the city limits to see new sites and roads. This route will explore some gems north and east of Fort Collins that many have not explored. A mid-way rest stop will provide a breaking point to take it all in and refuel before winding your way back into town. Check out the route.

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. Check out the route.

New for 2018: Finish in under 6 hours for men and under 6.5 hours for women and win the prestigious Bite the Bullet Bolo Tie.
