Ocate LION Fundo
September 15, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
New Route for this years LION. It’s a classic loop i do out my front door. 1/3rd gravel 2/3rd small back paved roads.
Starting up the freshly re-build 9 mile gravel pass over 9500′ towards black lake. The Aspen trees should be in full color change and the Elk out buggleing! Turn paved south down 434, a steep fast curvy no center stripe road with Coyote Creek next do you thats a blast. Then it turns off onto 11 miles of the best gravel in the area down Coyote Canyon. A rolling narrow fast and smooth road that was used as the last sector in the La Cueva Roubaix. You then hit pavement again for a wonderful three teired climb up past Ojo Faliz with a relaxing slow decent through the open grass plains of the Ocate valley filled with Antelope and wide open views.
Fully timed route. Riders need to be self supported. No outside support. I will sweep the route if all riders are not in after a 10 mph average passes.
Free camping with power and wifi. No food or Gas here so bring everything you need for the weekend. There will be a short dusk ride to catch some wildlife viewing saturday night and a camp fire pit after.
I hope you can make it out to the little hamlet we call home OCATE.
