West End Gravel Rush 2023

Sep 16, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

West End Gravel Rush

Mark your calendars for the ultimate gravel adventure on September 16th, 2023, in the rugged and captivating terrain of Nucla, Colorado. Welcome to “The Rush,” where we pay homage to the rich history of mineral exploration that once lured prospectors and miners to this high desert landscape.

Today, the remnants of that past rush remain, leaving behind a treasure trove of abandoned mines, extensive double track networks, and rarely used gravel roads. A new rush is emerging, fueled by the passion of modern-day adventurers like you.

Quiet Dirt Awaits:
Experience the tranquility of riding on lower-than-average motor vehicle traffic roads. As you traverse the well-maintained county roads, you’ll also encounter rowdy sections that guarantee fun and engaging riding. While it may not be the polished champagne of the front range, the equation for excitement is definitely present.

Embrace the Fall Weather:
September gifts us with an ideal climate, as temperatures hover in the high 70s and the sun bathes the landscapes in abundant sunshine. Amidst this scenic beauty, the Nucla farms come alive with vibrant colors. And as the day winds down, gather around a bonfire to enjoy the crisp nights and camaraderie.

Behold the Big Views:
At an elevation of 6,000 feet, “The Rush” presents you with expansive views of the majestic San Juan mountains, the La Sal mountains, and stunning canyon vistas. Each pedal stroke will reveal a breathtaking landscape that will leave you in awe.

The Details:
Join us at Nucla Town Park, Nucla, Colorado, 81424, on September 16th at 9:00 am MST for a fully supported gravel ride. Choose between two exciting routes: a 76-mile or 47-mile adventure, both designed to test your skills and reward you with remarkable experiences.

Get ready for an unforgettable day on the gravel, complete with prizes, a raffle, and the thrill of conquering the rugged terrain. “The Rush” promises to be an event you won’t want to miss. So, gather your fellow gravel enthusiasts and secure your spot for this exciting journey into the heart of Colorado’s natural wonders. Register now for an exhilarating day of discovery, camaraderie, and adventure!
