Favorite Local Routes | The Epic Stuff
Altitude Adjustment: Start/stop at the base of Sunshine Canyon. 75 miles / 10,000ft of climbing
GRVL DNKYS East: 81 miles / 2,000ft of vert. Can be a fast or slow ride. Take LOTS of extra water/food because there's nothing out there. Johnstown is your only place to refuel.
Blue Mountain Adventure: Starting at the Eagle Trailhead parking lot, you'll roll through the famous Boulder/Longmont gravel roads, through Lyons and Apple Valley to take on the short, but epic Blue Mountain loop. A nice climb on the backside leads to amazing views and a tight gripping, switchback-filled descent.
