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.
Fast forward to 2023 and gravel bikes are more than a thing. Our two courses take in the very best of Grand County gravel with long winding climbs through aspen and pine forests and wide open descents under the massive Colorado sky.
If nothing worth doing is easy, then Crooked Gravel is certainly worth doing. Our long route tackles over 5,000 feet of climbing on gravel, and our short route is perfect for beginners. All beginning at an elevation of 8,600 feet.
Our two courses take in the very best of Grand County gravel: a 25-mile gravel route & 67-mile gravel route
