Ordway is 50 miles east of Pueblo on Highway 96.
The route is over rural paved roads. Much of the time you will be able to ride 2-3 abreast, but there are sections where you will need to be single file. The entire course is remarkably free from steep grades. There are two or three small hills, but they are more accurately called bumps for those used to riding in Colorado. We will be riding past produce fields, ranch land, and through 9 small towns.
Packet pick-up will be the night before…
Not only a possibility, but a request! We are holding the ride on the same weekend as Crowley County Days. Saturday will be packed with fun things for the family to do. Check the enclosed link to Crowley County Days for the schedule.
If this is you first long ride or you want family to participate, we have three options:
The ride is a fund raiser for the Arkansas Valley Hospice. They are a great organization that provides services for three counties. Check the link provided for more information on them.
The Crowley County School District has been kind enough to open up their locker rooms for us. This will allow you to shower, freshen up, and maybe be energized enough to go check out the mud races held that afternoon and evening at the fairgrounds.
Century riders will depart at 6AM, shorter rides a little after that.
