Based out of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, you quickly discover why this area is becoming a world-class gravel cycling destination. Veloscapes owner JR Thompson has been riding the dirt roads around Steamboat for over 30 years, and his passion for these roads shines throughout the camp.

Our Steamboat Gravel Camp offers riders a guided and fully-supported gravel experience. Each day’s ride typically allows riders a few different route options, from 35 miles to 60 plus miles. Enjoy Veloscapes vehicle support providing mechanical/ride assistance, and plenty of energy products, snacks, and drinks throughout the ride!

Each morning a Veloscapes staff (probably JR) will meet you at your group’s lodging and set up a staging area to fit any rental bikes and look over everyones bike. JR was a 20 year professional bike mechanic and the Veloscapes support van has a small mobile repair shop onboard.

Most days we hop in the van for a short 20-minute shuttle. This allows us to “cherry-pick” the routes, and start the ride on a quiet gravel road.

Get in touch with any questions. We would love to show you around!
