October 8th, 2022

The Rad Ride

Deep in the Southern Colorado plateau lies an untouched plethora of gravel unlike any other. The towering Spanish Peaks and expansive mesas serve as the backdrop for the 3 unique courses of the ‘Rad Dirt Fest.  The courses are all more than 90% maintained, gravel roads and mostly rolling routes. It is all really scenic and unlike any other region in Colorado! Don’t be fooled though….the elevation and climbing will humble you, especially on the longer ride! We mean it when we say you’ll truly become one with nature out on these courses and see an abundance of wildlife! Jump in and see for yourself, it’s gonna be ‘Rad.
