The Wild Horse

April 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am 7:00 pm

The Wild Horse ride. Utah’s first Dirt Fondo, held in the Cedar Mountains.

Introducing a new type of bike ride. Zero miles of pavement. Wide open. Challenging. Explore a land only 45 minutes west of downtown Salt Lake City where hundreds of wild horses roam.

It won’t be easy.

The Wild Horse will travel around and over the Cedar Mountain Wilderness, located 45 minutes west of Salt Lake City on I-80. Zero miles of pavement. All dirt and gravel roads. You will cover 76 miles and climb 5,000 feet.

A link to detailed event FAQ can be found at the bottom of the page, or just click here.

The entire route is on county-maintained roads that are usually passable by any 2wd vehicle. The first nine miles are rolling uphill leading to the first real climb, up and over Hasting Cutoff Pass. Descend from the 5,775 foot summit to the west side of  the Cedars, and begin a rolling, fast ride south. At mile 38 the second climb, up and over Rydalch Pass, begins. Rydalch summit, at a little over 6,000 feet, is the highest point on the route. Descend to the east bench and begin the long, winding return. A rest stop at mile 54 provides a welcome break. You cross past the base of the Hastings climb again at mile 67. From there, it is mostly downhill, fast and smooth, for the 9 miles back to the finish.

Pioneertown Gravel Grinder by Bike for Bender

March 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am 6:30 pm


 Welcome to the 5th Annual Bike for Bender Pioneertown Fundraiser Ride.  This year’s ride will take place March 9th, 2019.

This ride starts at the Pioneertown Sound Stage and takes you 25, 35, or 50 miles across the desert floors and valleys, up steep and rocky jeep roads, and straight up into the heart of the San Bernardino Mountains up to Big Bear. In Yucca Valley, you pass through a variety of ecozones starting with long stretches of Joshua Tree laden paths and then you work your way up scenic jeep and mining roads to the snow-capped mountains at 7000ft.

The climb up is a grueling 3-4 hour grinder that is not for the faint of heart! In some areas the sand is deep, the rocks are big, and there are some “hike-a-bike” sections.  You can expect snow, ice and mud at high elevations. The good news is that after the climb, you’ll hit the turn-around point at 12.5, 17.5, or 25 miles and you’ll enjoy miles of fast and pedal-free descending all the way back.

What could be more fun than hanging out at an old cowboy and western film town, camping, bbqing and doing an epic ride with your friends?

 Courses

Giddyup 50 – 9:00 AM Start, ~50 miles, ~5500ft climbing, difficult – very difficult

Rawhide 35 – 9:00 AM Start, ~35 miles, ~3500ft climbing, moderate – difficult

Tenderfoot 25 – 9:00AM Start, ~25 miles, ~2800ft climbing, moderate   NEW DISTANCE

*Aid stations at mile  12, 18, 25, 32, and 38.
