Bike Sports launches Gravel Graceland and Gravel Unknown experiences for the summer of 2020
Gravel Graceland: A vast expanse of diverse gravel riding in Northern Colorado made up of diverse gravel riding terrain from flint hills to 12,000 foot dirt passes. To journey by bike in this region is to experience cycling. This area of Northern Colorado contains some of the purest, rock and roll, mixed terrain experiences you can get in the world, that’s why it’s called Gravel Graceland.
Longtime pros Zack and Whitney Allison figured out they lived and trained somewhere special. They were left in awe of Gravel Graceland too many times to not name the region and share their experiences with others. They own Bike Sports, and they want to take you on a ride.

Fort Collins is ground zero of this geographically amazing area of cycling, offering diverse mixed terrain routes. Gravel Graceland as an experience will bring riders 35-50 mile rides each day from July 31st to August 2nd, for three unique experiences. It will be just the right amount of adventure, push your comfort zone while also still being fun. Beyond riding, it includes everything you need to be comfortable on the ride from SAG with mechanical support, to Ibis Demo bikes, and Eliel Cycling masks provided for protection while in small groups. A BIPOC scholarship is also available for Gravel Graceland and is available on the website.
With COVID in mind, Bike Sports worked with the Larimer County Health Department on guidelines to keep riders safe including mask guidelines, group size limits, sanitary practices, and more. Of course riders need to decide if the camp is right for them at this time, but Bike Sports believes that with the practices in place, riders’ experiences won’t be diminished.
If Gravel Graceland doesn’t sound like enough and you want to find where the edge of your ability and drive is, check out Gravel Unknown, the ultimate four-day gravel experience that will leave you on the edge of your seat the whole time.
