High Plains Gravel Grinder
September 29, 2018
Come enjoy the challenging gravel roads around Elbert Colorado featuring a variety of terrain from rollers to short steep climbs. Test yourself on long stretches of gravel with views of Pikes Peak, beautiful local ranches and pine forests.
Every year in our small rural community we wind up asking for donations to support youth teams. It’s usually from the same people, who’s kids are all growing older and who will all too soon play for the high school. But it’s while holding the traditional bake sales when we learn the hard way, again and again, that it just isn’t enough to raise what money we need in today’s world.
Our little kids are wearing some very seasoned uniforms that have needed replacing with numbers washed off and so on. Moreover, they’re using old equipment that could easily be replaced if we had the financial resources. In reality the list never stops getting added too. Even though, the kids don’t really care; they all still play their hearts out! But we as parents are lookin’ out for them.
So this year a small group on the volunteer board of the Elbert Parks & Recreation decided to go outside the box thinking: “What does The Town of Elbert have to offer people from around this great state that could bring them to Elbert for a day to have fun in and around town?”
