Wheat Ridge Cyclery’s inaugural Colorado Crooked Roubaix took riders on an epic 90-mile dirt road ride through Grand County, Colorado on Saturday.

The route consisted of 5,000ft of climbing at altitudes approaching 10,000ft, with 60 miles on dirt and the rest on pavement. It wasn’t a race, but more of a gran fondo style challenge ride.

Some of the participants came to ride as hard and fast as their legs allowed, while the majority took in the spectacular scenery and hospitality of the ride’s five aid stations and catered lunch in Kremmling.
