Guided rides, what to expect:
Groups will be split among guides, there will be a novice friendly group for those that are interested. Groups will ride a 35 or 50 mile loop that will consist of flowing cedar sections, river beds, canyons, bulldozer cuts, and more! The novice group will shortcut around areas depending on how the group is doing. Guides will be announced in the near future.
Extreme ride, what to expect:
The extreme ride will feature the most challenging terrain that we have to offer, but run in a direction that makes most obstacles doable. You can expect hill climbs, big descents, and very technical river beds littered with rocks. If you like challenging yourself, this is for you. Guides will be there to help anyone through obstacles that may need it. This ride will make dinner and the beers around the campfire taste that much better! The extreme ride is much more about technical riding than it is going fast. Most sections will be second gear only but your heart rate will be up!
Night ride, what to expect:
Very casual, slow paced ride for those that have headlights or helmet lights, route will depend on the group that goes out in the dark.
Games, what to expect:
The guides will demo each event and winner will receive a trophy at the podium presentation. We will have a speaker so that Cole or any of the other guides can provide play-by-play commentary of the games. The games will take place by camp and will be easy to see for guests that aren’t riding
Game events include:
Six riders at a time will be placed in a large square taped off area. The last rider to put a foot down wins the heat. All heat winners will be placed into the championship round for a showdown.
Think trials riding but on a big bike. Participants will follow a marked course around camp with various obstacles. Think off-camber corners, hills, and tight cedars.
How low can you go? Riders will go through a left hand corner and try not to knock over the limbo bar. The rider that leans the lowest wins.
We encourage everyone to participate in the games but if you don’t want to, we expect you to be on the sidelines heckling your friends that are participating!
There will be room for campers and rvs. Campfires are not allowed under any circumstances. There will be a community fire that people who are camping are welcome to come and enjoy.

Neil Tucker with Grumpy's cooking will be at the ranch all weekend cooking for participants. Lunch both days is include with the ride but Neil will have food available for breakfast both Saturday and Sunday morning and then dinner available Saturday night. Post has a few restaurants for those that will be staying in town.
What to expect:
The idea behind this ride is to get a group of enthusiasts together for an epic weekend of riding trails that aren't typically available for riding to benefit the Kurt Caselli Foundation.
Riding outside of the camp area is only permitted with guides. There will be alternate sections marked for certain portion of trails that will allow an easier route around challenging terrain. Skratch labs will be providing relief stations along the trail to ensure that everyone stays hydrated and full of energy. All skill levels are welcome but the ride is limited to big bikes only. Wives welcome, but no ATVs or pit vehicles allowed. Mountain bikes are welcome!
The trails will range from bulldozer cuts through the caprock to technical sandy river beds and flowing cedar sections. We highly recommend running bibs and at the least, heavy duty tubes with sealant. Elevation is 3,200ft so jet accordingly. Temps range from the thirties to seventies in December. Groups can expect some excellent views and multiple stops at the waterfall so bring a camera! We encourage all participants to download the Rever app and add Cole Kirkpatrick as a friend. As we get closer to the ride, gps coordinates of the loop will be posted with the rever app for users to have during the event.
