    • Colorado’s Next Big Gravel Race, the ‘Rad Dirt Fest in Maybe Colorado’s Next Big Boom Town–Trinidad?

      Submitted by Bill Plock on April 5th, 2021

      The time capsule of Trinidad and the surrounding Spanish Peaks makes for the perfect back drop for what might become Colorado’s newest bucket list gravel bike and trail run event—Life Time’s ‘Rad Dirt Fest.

      The city of Trinidad, nestled at the base of Colorado’s newest state park, Fishers Peak, located on the North side of Raton Pass, will host this event in early October. Trinidad, one of Colorado’s oldest and most preserved cities still flourishes with about 10,000 people but it feels like it hasn’t changed much since its heyday in the early 1900’s.

      But it has changed–tons. As in tons and tons of coal that used to roll through here after being mined near the roads the ‘Rad Dirt Fest follows. Thousands of miners and their families lived in the Spanish Peaks area northwest of town leaving hundreds of miles of smooth gravel roads to play on a hundred years later. Read more

          Submitted by Bill Plock on April 1st, 2021

          Team Evergreen introduces the Session Series at Floyd Hill – a new weeknight short-course enduro series with a weekend finale on The Sluice, a highlight acclaimed trail at Floyd Hill in Clear Creek. The Sluice, originally known as Segment 4, opened for the first time on August 21, 2019. This mountain-bike-only public trail offers riders an extremely accessible opportunity to test their skills on a one-way trail. It is one of only a few top-to-bottom bike trails in Colorado aside from ski resorts and is known for its technical, rocky terrain. With steep rocks, high berms, and big jumps, it’s any technical rider’s dream.

          The series will benefit Clear Creek County to continue the trail-building efforts of the Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA), including a downhill trail system at Virginia Canyon and the Warren Gulch trail. Project Bike Tech, dedicated to teaching bike mechanics to high school students, will also be a beneficiary of the Session Series. Read more
