Salida Big Friggin’ Loop
June 9, 2018
Please make sure to read all rules for this. This is fully unsupported and you will need to be self-sufficient in order to complete this. The rules are located HERE.
Singletrack, high elevation, back country self supported endurance epic. Ride the base loop or the long loop. The long loop passes through the ghost town of Futurity (with brief hike-a-bike). There will be a time deduction for the first 20 long loop riders to pass through Futurity who are able to find a special Futurity Chip. Instructions about where to look for the chips when in Futurity will be given during the rider’s meeting.

Since the events are grassroots and will take participants to very rugged and remote places around the south-west, it should be understood that these are for experienced backcountry cyclists only. If you question your ability to complete such an event, it is best that you consider another option before trying one of these. Also, maps, gps devices, water filtration units, and other back country tools are a must. Failure to bring along any of these might very well get you into trouble. Therefore it is up to you – and you alone – to ensure your safety!!
The goal of the Colorado Endurance Series is to promote responsible grassroots endurance cycling in and around the south-west, and to provide a competitive outlet for the region’s current endurance racers – most of whom currently travel extensively in order to find competition. The Colorado Endurance Series will help train current endurance riders and perhaps enhance success by south-west endurance riders in national events.
