PUEBLO, COLORADO

Small town vibes under big open skies.

With 300 days of sunshine annually and a consistently mild climate, Pueblo is a great place to enjoy an outstanding quality of life. Colorado’s most historic and culturally diverse city boasts year-round outdoor activities, celebrated and varied dining options, one of only 12 state designated creative arts districts, and exceptional business opportunities.

The City of Pueblo is also known as the “Home of Heroes”. This moniker was in a speech in 1993 by then Colorado Representative Scott McInnis as he spoke to Congress about the uniqueness of a city Pueblo’s size having a record four recipients of the Medal of Honor claiming Pueblo as their hometown.

POLICIES

Entries are not refundable nor deferrable.

Your registration is not refundable nor deferrable to another GL150 event year. The event is rain or shine. Because it is for a charitable cause, under no circumstances will your registration fees or merchandise fees be refunded or registration deferred. Be sure when you sign up!

We will be allowing transfers between riders so please email us about a transfer request.

General Statements

Helmets are mandatory. Your bike must be in working order in order to be on the start line (think of the ABC Quick Check).

Read Fabián's statement about what inclusion means for Gravel Locos: "We Ride Together Or We Don’t Ride at All".

COVID Protocols

Gravel Locos 150 will follow all regional safety guidelines as related to reducing the spread of COVID-19.

At present these guidelines recommend face coverings (masks, bandanas, neck gators) indoors for unvaccinated individuals and if a 6 ft distance cannot be maintained. Unless you are fully vaccinated, we encourage you to wear face coverings at all gathering points throughout the event including at the venue in Pueblo, on the start line until the riders spread out in the first few miles and at all aid stations along the route. Riders receiving SAG support will be required to maintain a safe, 6-foot minimum distance from others when outside, and wear a face covering if being transported in a vehicle.

Aid station personnel will be encouraged to wear face coverings at all times and will be wearing gloves when handling food or fluid items. Hand sanitizer will be available at all aid stations.

Individual participants will not be permitted to self-serve at aid stations. Volunteers will manage the distribution of food and fluid items. Water bottles are to be filled in a contactless manner.

Some of these protocols may require additional time at an aid station than what you might be accustomed to. We ask that you exercise patience and understanding as we all do our part to keep everyone safe during Gravel Locos 150.
