Crooked Gravel

July 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Outside Events Cycling Series presents a high alpine gravel ride in Colorado’s Winter Park, Crooked Gravel. Picked as one of our best gravel cycling events in Colorado, this is a 95-mile dirt road that starts in Winter Park and leads riders up long winding climbs into the high mountains covered in pine and aspen trees. New in 2022, there are two course options. The long course is 67 miles that is timed with a large cash purse, up to $5,000 in cash prizes for best times of top three male and female winners. The elevation start is at 8,700 feet and riders will climb over 5,000 feet during this long course. There are 3 aid stations with the third one set-up right before the descent to the race finish. The shorter route, or Crooked Gravel “mini”, is only 30 miles but is still a challenge for any gravel rider. It also starts at Winter Park Resort at 8,700 feet and climbs 2,000 feet of elevation on the backside of the resort. This course is not timed or available for cash price but does have 1 aid station.

Crooked Gravel Registration includes event t-shirt, race support, opportunity to win cash prices and post-race celebration, Alpine Celebration, that includes expo exhibitors, raffles, podium awards, massages, post-race meal, and a beer garden with live music. Many participants plan to stay the full weekend to enjoy Winter Park which has multiple things to do all year long. Enjoy diversity in restaurants near the area such as Boca Winter Park, Prato, and Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine. Outside Events site has page dedicated to Travel & Lodging and the area has many hotels and campgrounds near the start of the course or in the nearby towns of Dumont and Fraser. Hotels include Winter Park Mountain Lodge and Lawson Adventure Park. Nearby campgrounds are Idlewild Campground and St. Louis Creek Campground, both open in May for the spring and summer seasons.

Outside Events is turning into a premier producer of cycling and gravel events including  Tour of the Moon,  Copper Triangle, Tour de Vineyards, Wild Horse Gravel, and Sunrise to Sunset.
