About This Activity

Join us for an  epic day of adventure by bike consisting of 50km or 100km of dirt, snow, sweat, and beerrolling through the world-famous cycling mecca of Boulder County, ColoRADo…from Lyons to Boulder and beyond.  

Quench your thirst for adventure at this ‘Snow or Shine’ cycling celebration. Get ready for some Colorado winter cycling fun like you’ve never experienced: Luxury aid stations with heat and eats, a hot meal and a cold beer at the finish line, and a rousing post-ride party with live music, contests, and a raffle. It will probably be the most fun you have all winter.

Sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewery and produced by Adventure Fit, you know it’s gonna be a day filled with adventure and great beer.

What to Bring

Remember, this is a rain, snow or shine event, so plan accordingly!  Your clothes must be able to regulate your temperature and keep you warm and dry. In addition to your required hemet, we recommend:

  • Gloves
  • Headwear
  • Shoe covers
  • Tights or legwarmers  
  • Extra clothes you can tuck into your jersey pockets
  • Tubes and tools so you can sef support on the course


You will likely see everything from a straight up road bike to a fat bike. Due to the nature of the course containing gravel (and trail if you choose the Long Course), we recommend tires at least 32mm(1 1/4″). Knobby tread will help with traction and slick treads could be dangerous depending on the course conditions. We predict cyclocross bikes and XC hardtails will be the best bet…although you’ll definitely get the most smiles and high fives on a fat bike.
