Ride the Grand Junction Off-Road. Choose from three different distance options of 15, 30 or 40 miles; each consisting of a carefully curated set of geologically mesmerizing (#mindblown) set of trails.

All participants will climb their way out of downtown Grand Junction onto the Uncompahgre Plateau (the world’s largest mesa), while connecting some of the area’s favorite technically challenging singletrack, double track, gravel roads and the occasional paved segment in the Lunch Loops and beyond.

During your three-day event visit to Grand Junction enjoy being submerged in the mountain bike industry. Mingle with the most bike-minded people you’ll ever encounter while appreciating the area’s wine country and feeling welcomed by its sincere appreciation for the outdoor enthusiast.

With an award in the form of an engraved stemless wineglass emblazoned with the distance you’ve finished, outstanding free live music, a cold beverage (gratis) from Sierra Nevada Brewing, and the comfort of its meandering main street engulfed by industry expo + beer garden waiting at the finish for all Off-Road participants…this is one finish line worth achieving.

The ‘Grand’ has a 93% finish rate. Technical? Yes. But attainable, too.

We tried riding today after some rain, and it didn't bode well. The clay mud was incredibly unrideable. Wait a day or so for it to dry out.
