The Pawnee Pioneer Gravel Weekend is a celebration of the Pawnee National Grasslands and the Pawnee Pioneer Trails Scenic Byway.

Once a thoroughfare for ambitious settlers, entrepreneurs and migrating herds of bison, the plains of Northeast Colorado have changed quite a bit in the last two centuries. But the Pawnee Pioneer Trails travels through some of the last untouched prairie in North America. As you ride through the Pawnee National Grasslands you will see a landscape that is largely unchanged from what the original settlers saw. In some places you can see original wagon ruts left behind by pioneers.

You will share the dirt roads with cows, pronghorn, bison and on a rare occasion you will see a vehicle. It is pleasant, scenic and challenging. It is challenging because there is limited range and very few places on the route to stop for assistance. You will need to rely on yourself and the basic rest stops provided along the way!

There are routes for everyone including those that relish riding over 100+ miles daily. Ride one day or both day. Go short or go long or do a bit of both.

Saturday - 9/3/22

Sunday - 9/4/22

Lodging Options:

Sterling Beeter Half Transportation

For those doing the Sterling Beeter Half, you will start at the Spring Canyon Bar Ranch in Raymer and end in Sterling.  There will be a bus and bike transportation from Sterling to Spring Canyon Bar Ranch.   You will need to reserve a spot on the bus when you register.  

Aid Stations

There will be an aid station every 15 to 25 miles.  Aid Stations will have water, hydration drink and basic snacks.  Local community members will be onsite to provide additional goodies.   At times the community will be fundraising and these goodies will be for sale.   Please ensure that you plan accordingly and carry any additional supplies you may need.   

There are limited stores and on the route. Don't hesitate to stop by a local ranch or farm if you need water or help.  They know you are coming and will be happy to help!

SAG Wagons

We will have SAG wagons on the route to provide support.   They will have extra tubes, bike pumps, water, and basic medical supplies.   

Personal Support

Many of you may have personal support on the route and while we welcome it we will provide personal support with routes to meeting spots so they are not on the routes if they don't have to be.   We are trying to limit as many vehicles as possible from the route to ensure safety and minimize dust.  

Route Marking

The route will be marked but we strongly encourage you to download the RidewithGPS maps of the route and travel with a paper map and cue sheet.
