4 Steps
to Ride Success at Roam

1. Snag Your Add-Ons

There are a finite number of Guided Ride, Shuttle, and Demo passes that will all sell out. Snag your Add-Ons with your event registration. 

2. Download Trailforks

Trailforks has never given us a dime to say this, but we'll keep insisting that the easiest way to ride anywhere, including at Roam, is to use the Trailforks app. 

3. Start at the Ride Zone

Looking for more info on shuttles, DIY group rides, guided rides, general trail beta, hydration, or anything even remotely ride related?

Head to the Ride Zone!

4. Sign Up, Be Prepared

Many of our workshop rides, and all of our Guided Rides & shuttles require signing up with our Ride Beta experts. Remember, always arrive to your ride prepared and early!

Level up your weekend at Roam with expertly curated rides supported by our local Ride Guides. 

What makes Guided Rides slap? Well, a few things:

- Leave the navigating to us! With over 280 miles of trail in the Grand Valley, it's tough to know the best routes and how to ride them. 

- Our Ride Beta experts will place you on a ride that's just right for your experience, pace, hopes and dreams

- Small group size with max 6 riders plus a Ride Guide

- The ability to sign up for any shuttle to any trailhead, even if you are headed out for a DIY ride. 

- Our commitment to keeping rides fun-first.

Sound good? We thought so too. Guided Ride passes go quick, so snag one while you can.

Guided Rides

Guided Rides + All Shuttles ($60)

Hop on a Guided Ride that includes a shuttle, OR schedule yourself on an available open shuttle anywhere, anytime, all weekend long. ​

Grand Valley All Weekend Open Shuttles ($30)

Lunch Loops? Yep.​

Kokopeli Trails? Yep.

18 Road hot laps? Yep. 

18 Road All Weekend Open Shuttles ($20)

Shuttle like a local & skip the pedal up to the top of our favorite downward-trending rides (PBR, Joe's Ridge, etc.)

Sunday-Only 18 Road Shuttles ($8)

We'll let you in on a Roamie not-so-secret: you're legs'll be toast by Sunday. ​No worries! We've got shuttles running to the top of 18 road all dang day. 

Get chummy with other Roamies as you head to the trailhead on one of our dozens (maybe hundreds?) of shuttles all weekend long. ​

We've got four ways to party all the way to the trailhead:

A Great Ride Starts with a Hassle Free Lift to the Trailhead 

Trailhead Shuttles

FYI, Kokopeli Trailhead and Lunch Loop shuttles are TRANSPORTATION to trailheads, not a ride to the top of a mountain to ride down (those kind of trails/roads don't exist)

NEW! All festival pass holders will be able to demo bikes from 1pm-4pm! 

Ebikes? Yep! Carbon? Uh-huh. Full-suspension? You betcha! 

Want to demo all day AND guarantee yourself a bike in your specific size? Upgrade yo'self to an all-weekend Demo Bike Pass Add-On for $75 smackaroos. Grab a second or third (or sixth!) bike before 1pm to ensure size availability. 

Demo riders should come ride-ready with a helmet and bike shoes. Credit card and ID are required for a security hold (standard industry procedure).

A few are inclusive, meaning anyone who cares to support or party with a group may join:
