The Ramble Ride is a multi-day bikepacking trip that travels through Larimer County.
The roads are primarily gravel county roads, which are minimally traveled by motor
vehicles. Except for Buckhorn Road, which does have some homes, the remaining roads
are bounded by National Forest and traffic is primarily other recreational users.

All camping is USFS or Private locations.

We have our NF permit in concurrent process with Hillary Santana, Multi Forest Recreational
Manager for Roosevelt NF.

The rider limit is capped at 150 by USFS in order to limit the impact on National Forest lands,
campgrounds and communities we travel through. This small group also eases traffic
concerns and improves our ability to manage safety for riders on the route.

Unlike other bicycle events or races, the small groups do not travel in a “pack” or
peloton. Due to the nature of bikepacking, the riders break off into groups of 4-8 and
travel at slower speeds. We find this aspect helps to limit impact and issues on
backcountry roads as the small groups are easily passed if needed. 

Additionally, we use MUTCD/DOT event signage pursuant to NFS requirements in order to alert nonparticipants to an event. These are placed each day by the lead vehicle and picked up by sag vehicle.
