(Lander, WY) – The Lander Cycling Club has announced dates for three events. Check them out below.
Fremont Area Road Tour (The FART) – June 11
This event showcases the Lander cycling experience and offers an adventure for the whole family. The group tour begins on Main St with a police escort down our iconic Main St. Riders then take off on the picturesque Baldwin-Squaw loop before heading up Sinks Canyon for one of the best road rides in the state. 2022 will see the addition of a kids’ ride along our scenic creek trail. Participants at the FART receive 50% off admission to the Lander Brewfest that starts shortly after the ride, making this a great pre-drinking activity!
The Jurassic Classic- Mountain Bike Festival – Aug 18-21
The Jurassic Classic is an annual mountain biking celebration at the foot of the Wind River Mountains. The Lander area has unlimited single-track potential, and we’re here to tap it… and maybe a few kegs along the way.
Come ride bikes on our growing trail systems with new and old friends during this three-day festival. You can look forward to top notch live music, brand new 2022 demo fleets to rip around on, delicious food, beer at every stop, MTB films to inspire, trailblazing, some ridiculous bike-related games, and much more.
WYO131 Gravel Grinder – September 10
The 131 mile route is the ultimate bucket-list gravel ride and is a true classic, up there with most unique and original gravel rides like Mid-South, Gravel Unbound, the original Almanzo 100 and the now retired Trans Iowa. This rugged ride is well known for its 5 STAR gravel in the most remote and least densely populated regions of the Midwest.
For real cowboys and cowgirls, the 131 mile distance is one of the toughest gravel races in the U.S. with over 10,000 feet of climbing, minimal support and podium prize money! 2022 sees the addition of a 40 mile and a 70 mile route to suit all abilities of riders who want to soak up some hoodoos, rolling hills, and the sweeping views of Wyoming high desert landscape.
