Bike packing is a lot of fun, but often it’s a daunting adventure for folks. It can be expensive with all the gear, maybe a different bike, the planning and travel. The Ramble was born out of a love of two-wheel travel and an attempt to make adventures like this less daunting for everyone. So that’s why we take care of all meals, and minimize the amount of gear you carry on your bike. We focus on camp life so you’re fully recharged for the next day’s adventure. We work with our partners to get you deep discounts if you do want to by gear, but don’t make it a priority if you don’t.
In years past, the Ramble has often been folks first adventure into bike packing. We’ve even had folks who had never camped before a Ramble, folks who had never ridded multiple days of the milage we ride. People who’d never been above 10,000 feet unless it was in a plane. But we’ve also hosted seasoned pros, national champions and riders of divides. The magic of the Ramble is sharing the experience with people who love bikes and adventure just as much as you do.
The format means everyone gets their own ride and there are no real limits in how long you need to get to camp. Sure we keep tabs on weather and impending darkness, but it’s your pace and you’ll find the routes challenging no matter who you are.
So come join us for 3 days of riding and adventuring. You’re guaranteed to get hooked.
Don’t just take our word for it though:
Me, trying my best to appear unshattered around the 70 mile mark on Day Two of the Steamboat Ralleye, July 2016. My legs were heavy after having gained 8k that day, over and through 10k ft Rocky Mountain passes, and my eyes and lungs stung from the ash in the air due to a nearby wildfire. The high temp that day was in the upper 90s. It was a brutal and undenyably beautiful experience. It moved the mark on my self-perception meter, to a point somewhere between a realization that I've only just started to tap into my mental and physical capabilities and yet feeling stronger and more empowered than I ever have in my whole life. That's what bikes do, if you let them. My most sincere thanks to @corbinbrady for snapping this on good ol' 35mm film. #bikepacking #steamboatralleye #komorebicyclingteam #colorado @breadwinnercycles @revelatedesigns @ridepdw
