Crooked Gravel Bicycle Ride
Aug 10, 2019
Rode Course Distances
High-altitude views abound in every direction. Crisp mountain air exhilarates the senses. And swarms of riders fire each other up. And that’s before the ride even starts!
Both the 68- and 97-mile routes get right down to business, taking riders from downtown Winter Park onto remote gravel roads and up into the mountains.
Brand new for 2019, Crooked Gravel takes a few cues from an exploratory event the legendary Ron Kiefel put together a decade ago called Crooked Roubaix. Back before gravel bikes were really a thing, Kiefel and some friends set out on a 95-mile dirt-road adventure from Winter Park up into the high mountains on road bikes.
