Ride The Cog – Hayden, CO

May 30

$40.00

The Hayden Cog Ride is impressive both in its physical presence and historical prominence. Although ‘gravel grinders’ are currently a big trend for cyclists, West Routt County, CO has been gravel grinding for over a century, thanks to early Hayden pioneers and cycling enthusiasts Ferry Carpenter and Ernest Walker. The Cog Ride takes advantage of the Cog’s impressive climb along with the network of gravel roads surrounding Hayden. The Cog Ride has proven to be a colorful gathering of every level and age of bicycle enthusiast. From vintage models, single speeds, and tandems to fat bikes and high-end racing setups, and even to electric-assisted bicycles, you see it all at the Cog Ride, which benefits the Hayden Heritage Center Museum.

The ride has three options including a 31 mile scenic ‘Gravel Grinder’ that starts with a challenging ride on pavement up the Cog then circles west on gravel roads around Elkhead Reservoir; a 26 mile ‘Mud Route’, almost entirely on gravel and dirt, starts with a spectacular climb up the Middle Cog then heads along remote backcountry routes including the homestead of Ferry Carpenter; or the challenging 43 mile ‘Combined Ride’ which features the best of both routes. The Combined Route starts at 9:00am while the Gravel Grinder and Mud Routes begin at 9:30am. A short and very easy family ride at 11am lets the youngest riders participate both with bicycle decoration, and a fun obstacle course.
