General Information:
About Bailey:
Located less than an hour from Denver, and less than an hour and a half from Boulder, Bailey offers unparalleled access to single track trails—both the Buffalo Creek Trail System, and the Colorado Trail are easily accessible from the heart of Bailey.

The Bailey HUNDO is a Colorado nonprofit organization that produces a world class 100-mile endurance mountain bike race starting and ending in Bailey, Colorado. We invest the money raised by the HUNDO in youth biking initiatives in Colorado, which include, for 2011, Trips for Kids Denver/Boulder, the Colorado High School Cycling League (statewide), and Kids On Bikes (Colorado Springs). The HUNDO has an additional goal of supporting economic development in the Platte Canyon area by developing Bailey into a Front Range mountain biking destination.

Starting from the heart of Bailey, the race features over 40 miles of singletrack—more in 2011 than in 2010—as it winds from Bailey through the Buffalo Creek Trail system and along the Colorado Trail to South Platte to Deckers up Stony Creek Pass to Wellington Lake, and back to Bailey!

Company Overview:
The Bailey HUNDO was launched in 2010 out of a partnership between four of Colorado’s finest State Senators—Senator Chris Romer, Senator Greg Brophy, Senator Mike Kopp, and Senator Mark Scheffel—as well as the Platte Canyon Chamber of Commerce and the Colorado Mountain Biking Association (COMBA). The race will be sponsored, in part, by the Platte Canyon Cycling Club, Wheat Ridge Cyclery, Outdoor Wilderness Adventures, and many other generous folks!

The 2011 Bailey HUNDO will be a suggested-donation-based event, with a suggested minimum of $100. All donations are tax deductible and all donations--minus race costs--will be allocated to further of the mission of the Bailey HUNDO.

For our second year, the USFS has generously increased our permit to allow for 250 select riders to enjoy the HUNDO this year. As growth is limited, the 2011 Bailey HUNDO will also be structured as an invitational. We are partnering with a great Colorado company, PreRace.com this year, and they will be making the application for open racer slots available in mid-March. Further information will be made available here and at www.bailey100.com as appropriate.

We are happy to invite all of the racers who finished the 2010 Bailey HUNDO to come back in 2011.

2010 Bailey Hundo



Lots of crap out on the course

I can understand that stuff happens. Hell, i've missed putting things in my jersey pocket too many times to count. But that's not the point. The point is that there was a ridiculous amount of crap on the trails at Buffalo Creek. The amount of crap would lead one to believe that it wasn't just a simple mistake but a blatant "eff you" to everyone else. If I knew how post pics you'd likely say the same thing.

Granted I probably came in before the organizer cleaned things up but how much of that crap blew off the course.

All you litterbugs can kiss my @$$!

I saw several Cliff wrappers

I saw several Cliff wrappers on the single track section, which is curious because Hammer products were being given out. On another forum it was stated that volunteers and sweepers did clean up the course and it looked good on Sunday.

No reason to litter folks, just pocket the garbage and discard at the next aid station.
