For 2020, the Buena Vista Bike Fest has added a GRAVEL GRINDER. Leaving BV, the Gravel Grinder route passes through the Colorado Midland Railway Tunnels past the historic town of Vicksburg to either the Sheep Gulch trailhead (official turnaround) or the Winfield ghost town.
Road cyclists can do one of the most beautiful rides in the state, with four route options (century, metric, half century and 35 miles). You will take in the outstanding views of Colorado’s highest mountain peaks while enjoying the sunshine of the Arkansas River Valley. This is an ideal warm up for your summer riding season and is only a two-hour drive from the Front Range! More information is available at bvbf.org.
BV Bike Fest is put on by Buena Vista Rotary and the proceeds support the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, no matter their family’s income. Rotary funds this project locally with to encourage early reading.
From noon until 5:00 p.m. relax at the BVBF Post Ride Party in McPhelemy Park. Join us for beverages, food, music and prizes. You might even want to get a massage. F
This area is a sports paradise, so plan to spend the weekend in Buena Vista and enjoy rafting, mountain biking, fishing, hiking or just sight-seeing.
