Lyons, Colorado has rolled out the red carpet for the #oldmanwinterrally for 4 years now! The amazing people of Lyons were devastated by the floods of 2013 and have been rebuilding their beautiful parks and landscape since. We're so grateful to have such a beautiful host community for our event. Oh, did we mention that @oskar Blues got its start right here in 1997?

If you haven't heard just how awesome the Niner Bikes RLT 9 RDO is for crushing gravel, read this review from Josh Patterson with BikeRadar following last year's Old Man Winter Rally. Josh rode the RLT in the 2017 event and wrote this masterful review of Niner's top of the line gravel grinding machine. Check it out ----> ow.ly/cJBZ30hNppm

About OMW

The Old Man Winter Bike Rally was created to be THE winter adventure event. With two bike courses and a one-of-a-kind running course, there is plenty of winter adventure for all runners and cyclists.


It is the one and only winter cycling festival that brings Boulder’s best riding to cyclists of all levels. From quiet country roads to scenic mountain lakes, we’ve got the distance and the terrain you’re after.

  • Choose the 50km option for a scenic spin along the paved and gravel farm roads on the east side of the Foothills Highway.
  • Choose the (roughly) 100k course to tackle some extra miles over beautiful rolling gravel roads North to the famed Carter Lake before returning back to Lyons.


  • The 5.4-mile run take you out and back in a Red Rock canyon that incorporates sections of the ever-popular Picture Rock Trail and “Lyons Fruit Loops”. It’s truly a “Best of Lyons’ course with big views, minimal elevation gain, and mixed terrain.

Our Cause

Our event benefits Can’d Aid and funds will go towards rebuilding your favorite flood-damaged hiking and biking trails.


Training Clinics

We have two cycling and one running clinic designed to help you ROCK the Old Man Winter Rally. At each one, we’ll get in some training, then get expert tips back at one of our sponsor’s stores while we drink free Oskar Blues beer and eat CLIF bars! Stay tuned for the schedule…
