Bike Rodeo
Hosted by The Flannel Crew

A Bike Rodeo traditionally is an event that creates excitement about bikes and teaches foundation skills in a fun, light-hearted manner. We’re doing our own take on a Bike Rodeo and are adding a twist of absurdity and mountain-bike-centricity with thanks to The Flannel Crew – our helpful hosts.

Leave Strava behind and come let your hair down. Test your skills and talents (or lack thereof) by throwing yourself into the ring of ridiculousness for the fun of it.

Grab some great prizes while you’re at it. Bonus points for costumes! Here’s what’s on the line up so far!

1. Inner Tube Tug O’ War
Participants will wrap an inner tube around their waists, face opposite directions and attempt to pull their opponent off balance and to the ground or past their end line.

2. Adult Tricycle Races // Adult Kids Bike Course
Big kids racing things big kids don’t normally ride! No better way to bring back your childhood roots than small wheeled tools of the trade. Adult tricycles, striders race or kids bikes bomb around a cone track for best time. Come get goofy.

3. Lowest Bike Limbo Contest
How low can you go? In this event, participants will defy gravity in a non-conventional way to test how low they can roll under the limbo bar.

4. Bunny Hop Comp
Using the same tools as the Bike Limbo, but going over instead of under will be the goal. Whomever goes biggest wins!

5. Huck to Flat/Long Jump Contest
Participants will send it as hard and far as they can. They’ll roll up, hit the jump and fly as far as possible. The class structure for this event will be separated by age and bike type.

6. Footdown Comp
A group bike game where the objective is to avoid put your foot on the ground. Participants ride around til there’s only one person who hasn’t put their foot down, whether it be the full foot, or just a toe. No contact permitted and if you do, you’re donating to the Ride the Rockies Society!

7. Wheelie Contest
Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned wheelie throw down? Time to channel your inner Wyn Masters. In this event, contestants will pop the longest wheelie they possibly can for the win! But will it be straightforward and direct? Come along and find out.

8. Toss a Clunker Comp
In this event, participants will attempt to throw an old ‘clunker as far as they can. Think javelin throwing but biker style.
