    Bailey Hundo

    100-mile race in Buffalo Creek area in June. Bet if this goes well, it gets big in the future.

    This is great for mountain biking in Colorado. Hard not to get enthusiastic when four state senators are pushing for a 100 mile endurance event. The course profile looks brutal. The climb out of the Platte at the 70 mile mark = suffer.

    already?

    Invitations will be available by lottery, and applications will be available at www.bailey100.com, as of April 26th and will be accepted until May 19th, at which time invitations will be sent out.
    that's worded like invites wouldn't start until the 19th.

    did you pledge a whole bunch of money?

    I just looked at the route. Doesn't look like it'd be worth my time.

    I just pledged a normal amount. Keep in mind you can raise money but the email I got looks to be a mass generated email saying multiple people were in. My guess, not many people are applying due to the miles and vertical gain along with a mostly fireroad route. Still its a good cause so hope I can raise what I pledged. With riders like Wiens and Brown coming, I'm hoping for a 2nd to last finish.

    not very accessable

    If they are trying to draw attention to the riding options in Bailey, they might make it more accessable by having a shorter option or 2, and open it up to more participants. I doubt I could do 100 miles at this point in the season. And, it looks like an exclusive, invite only deal. Is that going to help me learn about riding in Bailey? I doubt it. I'm a COMBA/BMA memnber too. But good idea, we need more riding options.

    I don't think the overall focus is to draw attention to Bailey as a riding option. The trails we'll be riding is everything we're all familar with in the Buffalo Creek area, the rest is fireroads and jeep trail. From what I'm understanding the focus is raising money for at risk youth and to get them on bikes.

    OK, makes sense then. I don't get to BC often, and cruise thru Baily when coming back from CB, etc. Have fun.

    I found some of the info on the site confusing. Specifically, the route profile looks to show just over 100miles of riding, but the route map looks like it's roughly 100km (if the various markers 'BH00' through 'BH65' are mile markers).

    What am I missing?

    The climb looks brutal on the route profile because of the scale. But, from looking at the elevation at approx the 80mi mark and again at just before the 90mi mark, it looks to climb just shy of 2000' in just shy of 10mi. 200' per mi is no big deal, unless it's really technical trail at that point. If it's fire road, shouldn't be bad at all.

    Yes. That climb is primarily dirt road.

    Chris Romer convinced me to ride last night. I'm in.

    I met Chris @ WRC one afternoon, he told me of their preliminary plans. He seems genuinely excited/supportive of cycling in all forms, so I'm particularly interested in the event. I sent in my 'indication of interest' yesterday. I don't ride that area often enough to be familiar with the trails from just looking at the route map, but I'm very excited about possibly getting in, regardless.

    Coming June 19th - Notes from the Bailey Hundo:

    I’m one of three guys that laid this course out. Confident that this course will challenge the most burley dirt riding sole! One of our missions was to create a course that has varied terrain, so not to favor a “specialist”. The start takes you out of downtown Bailey on a rolling road for 6ish miles allowing the stronger riders to get up front and string out the field so we don’t bottle neck at the beginning of the Colorado Trail! Bring your single track skills because the mostly single track and two tracks trails will bring you to the 55ish mile marker. You’ll need to eat and drink while on the river road because the climbs get hard on the way over Stoney pass. SO….. Can you finish in the Hundo in 13 hours?
    The planning and support that has gone into this event will be sure to put this race in the top 100 mile events to do!
    • Please give the Senators that put this race into motion some positive feedback!
    • The good folks from the Bailey Chamber have stepped up big to make the reception, aid stations and awards party really nice.
    • Special thanks to both North Fork Fire Department and Platte Canyon who are working with me to ensure your safety.
    • The money is going towards a great cause(s)!

    The Hundo -Enjoy the ride!

    So, what's the deal with the route map? It looks like 65 miles, but the profile shows over 100. What's the real deal?

    Those are just markers from the gps.
    It's a 100 miles. I might have to make some slight changes for the finish area depending on land use issues.
    Keep you posted.

    Great course! Forgive me for the stupid question: by self-support, does that mean no outside support or can you have your own crew hand out food and water? I probably won't be ready for this one, daddy day care is eating up my ride time, but I might have to try this one in the fall on my own.

    Aid stations? It would be nice not to have to carry a filter...all I really need from outside would be fresh water, where would that be?

    Click "Go Advanced" button at bottom of thread, then scroll down and there is an "upload images" button to attach files.

    You would probably want the bailey100.com site owner to get it on the web site though so it is clear...anyone doing the ride will need this info.

    Water, Bananas, power gel stuff, Gatoraid and hopefully fig newtons!
    Any requests?
    Wheat Ridge Cycles will have mechanics on the course to help out too.

    PB&J is always a favorite - Later aid stations (if cold out), chicken noodle soup is awesome and can't beat a nice Coke when warm out.

    do you have a .crs file? or .gpx or whatever. something to follow? or even some turn-by-turn directions. looks pretty straightforward until the end of the CT? (waypoint BH45)

    thanks.

    The website says to apply by May 19th. I took that to mean that they were closing the door on expressing interest and they'd choose the invitees sometime after that date.

    Rather than ask who hasn't heard anything, I'd be curious to see if anyone has in fact actually heard anything. Anyone who doesn't have some sort of connection, that is. IOW, who has filled out the form online AND heard back from them?

    I got an invitation last night that I am in. I applied online late last week. As far as I know I don't have any connections. I did commit to donating $250 to the non-profit...not sure if that helped.

    Remember...

    These trails the race will be on do not happen magically. Help make it the Baily Hundo and Ten for next year. Come on out this weekend and help add to the collection of BC trails.

    Join COMBA for a weekend of trail building in Buffalo Creek on May 22nd and 23rd

    Join us for a fun weekend of trail building, camping, and friends in Buffalo Creek on the weekend of May 22nd and 23rd. Our April weekend was a huge success which saw the construction and armoring of several difficult rock sections and new singletrack leading to the peak of the ridge. In the upcoming build weekend we will be continuing work on the "black diamond" trail building transitions from drops, berms, and connecting the trail to its lower intersection with Homestead trail. We also will be working on twisty new section of trail on Charlie's Cut-off.

    This weekend will be back-to-the-basics camping weekend. Join us for a single day or camp with us through the weekend. Beer will be provided and brats will be on the grill Saturday afternoon.

    Please RSVP using the link below and help us complete the trail in 2010:

    http://www.comba.org/content/buffalo...r-registration

    In the Fall 2008, a group of local riders led by Keith Clarke and Stu Miller flagged a trail corridor which climbs to the top of a rocky ridge before descending back into the valley. Construction began last year with volunteers contributing over 1,000 hours of work, but there is still much to be done.

    We have ten trail building days scheduled for this year: 4/17, 5/22 & 23, 6/19, 7/24 & 25, 8/21, 9/11, 9/25 and 10/16. The events on 5/22-23 and 7/24-25 will be back-to-the-basics camping weekends held at the Miller Gulch Trailhead. Note that our original opening trail buildig day on 3/27 has been canceled due to weather.

    Please join us by RSVP'ing for one of our volunteer trail building days or find out more about the project here:

    Does anyone have a printed route for the race? I think I have about 90% of it figured out by looking at a Buff Creek and CO trail map but wanted to pre-ride as much as possible. I did the climb from The S. Platte to Wellington Lake and then CO trail back to the car. Solid climb from Deckers, and late in the race.
    Thanks

    Thanks
    So, did you just park from the Platte and ride a loop from there? What was the total mileage? I am thinking of parking on the Wellington Lake Rd. and riding the route from there.

    I parked at the Platte where the CO trail crosses and rode to Wellington lake, then down the road to the CO trail and back to the car. I can't tell from the map if the race just stays on the CO trail or if it does a loop around green mtn or anywhere else?

    little opacity thing with photoshop...



    looks like it goes CT > redskin > gashouse > miller gulch trailhead > buck gulch trailhead > skipper > homestead > charlies > sandywash > 543 > green mountain loop > CT > buffalo burn > CT

    would still like a .crs/.gpx file if there is one?

    is the route on the road pretty straightforward? any special turns or landmarks to know about?

    The road was pretty straight forward. Once on the dirt, always stay to the right on all splits in the road. I didn't ride Green or The burn, just CT all the way and it was 53ish miles.
    I still can't tell on the CT if it turns on redskin or goes down the CT to the road and turns back up?

    woot woot!

    Dear Lucky Applicant,

    Thanks to your strong cycling background, and generous estimated pledge amount, you have been selected to receive an invitation to the Bailey HUNDO: The Senators' Underground Invitational. Attached you will find a copy of your invitation, sent on behalf of the four sponsoring Colorado State Senators: Romer, Scheffel, Kopp and Brophy.
    thinking of pre-riding the course on sunday. but it might be a little much just a week before the gunnison growler.

    I thought someplace I read about a 6am start - sounds about right with a 13hr cutoff maybe?

    Anyone else notice, but if you go to the Bailey Hundo website, there's a link for "racer info" that gives the distinct impression that all you have to do to enter is to show up to a mandatory pre-race rider meeting and make your donation. I wonder, does this mean that they had less than 150 people apply for an entry so they're opening it to whoever shows up, or did they increase the rider limit, or am I completely missing something?

    I think you're reading too much into it. It's just the pre-race instructions.

    I hope the race is more organized than the registration process. Registered before the cut-off date and did not hear anything. I emailed them using the communication form on the website I think on Monday or Tuesday and still have not receive a response back. All I asked is if my registration was accepted or not as the race date is close and I need to make plans if I am racing.
    I'm assuming since I have not heard anything I am not in which is fine, just thought it would be nice to have received some type of communication letting me know either way.
    Anyone else have the same situation?

    I am sure slamming the race in an online forum will help your chances of getting in tremendously!
    It is a first year race and it sounds like they have a ton to get done to pull this off in a short period of time.
    Give them a break.

    - I have no affiliation with the race.

    Not really sure how I am "slamming" anything or anyone. I asked if anyone had a similar situation as myself. A bit disappointed yes, but please do not take this as critical.
    I also should mention I have been checking my spam/junk folder. I thought this would be a good place to post if anyone affiliated with the race sees this for the head's up. Did not know how else to contact them.

    Your questions are legit sbcalla.
    I think the thing to remember is that initially this race started out as an off the books, non-supported trial run for a future race and grew into something more. I am sure everyone is learning a lot for a more formal event in the future. Hope you get the email invite.

    That isn't much cover to hide behind. This event is being promoted by some fairly big names and supported by the town and other well meaning organizations.

    The notification process could be a whole lot better without much effort. The lucky participants got an invite, but it appears the unlucky ones only get to hear the crickets. This is frustrating and probably not the best way to encourage folks to try again next year.

    If anyone associated with promoting this event is watching, how about some sort of registration is closed response to people who are willing to raise money for the charities but aren't going to get in. If registration is full, update the website.

    Only registered riders will be participating in the event. There is a mandatory rider meeting for registered riders where forms will be signed, donations collected, information passed out, and etc.

    Jasonb: Thank you for the update info. However with regards to the Contact form on the website, as I mentioned earlier I used this on Mon or Tues this week and have yet to hear back. Not sure if my question go lost or they are not answering any of these types of questions. Just thought I would let others know if they are in the same boat as I and vice virsa.
    As mentioned a few posts ago, the only reason I originally posted something was because if I was accepted I would like as much time as possible to fundraise, not to mention figuring out logistics and change of training plan.

    I think you missed the point of my question. If you go to the 'racer info' page, you'll see all that info, but it reads as if it applies to any/everyone. It does not look like it applies to invitees only. In fact, if you go to that page it tells you that you HAVE received an invite. Perhaps it should read, "IF you have received an invitation..."

    Hundo Notes as of May 29

    Hey Guys!
    The Hundo is a charity based race that will support and fund the formation of the Colorado High School mountain bike league and some other groups like Denver based Trips for Kids.
    The point of the safety meeting is the same as any other pre race meeting. We will cover ride safety, aid stations, hazards on the course, places for riders to pick up supplies and best point for support crews to meet…… and more.
    Donations and or payment were set up as a means to collect rider's donations. As a function of being a newly formed organization, we had to offer easy and convenient methods for both riders and the Hundo organization.
    The race was limited to a small amount of mostly exprienced riders participating this first year so we can work out any kinks. The application process is officially closed with an amazing group of participants that have solid race resumes. I can’t wait to meet and thank these folks that are traveling from all ends of the country to our little town of Bailey to the Hundo!
    Many Thanks
    John G - Course Marshal

    Hey, John... let the folks know that the rest of us, the not so 'solid race resume' racers would have appreciated some sort of notice that we were not in. Even Leadville posts their start list, so even if you don't get their "sorry, you didn't make it in" email, you can check your status. As it is, with the Hundo you only know if you're in IF you're in. If you're out, you're wondering.

    I'd say that counts as a "kink".

    I applied online and didn't hear anything, plus I've gone through the "contact us" link on the website 3 or 4 days ago, and haven't heard back from that, either.

    Hey steadyflow, I got 57.7 miles and a little extra climb by missing the turn off to dirt after Deckers.

    Looking for some course details on the front part that I can download to the garmin, do you know of any tracks on Garmin Connect that would work.

    Thanks

    Thanks steadyflow!!

    Max temperature 98.6! Ouch!!!
    That could be the x factor for this race. I sure hope it's overcast and in the 70's for the race.
    I always dread shinglemill in the heat during the day, 60 miles of road....YIKES

    Just looking at the Update Course Map on the website. Excuse my lack of knowledge of maps, but what does the BHxx represent? I assume the BH is Bailey Hundo. The numbers don't make sense to me as it looks like the last number before the finish is BH53?
    Thanks

    They are just waypoints mapped. They do not represent miles.

    Too many funds going into the bike this month(new wheels, new fork, new crankset) + lack substantial distance riding this past month + wanting some more exploration riding has caused me to pull the plug on Bailey.

    Good Luck bro!

    This a great article about a guy who loses his mind on endurance races and freaks out. He thinks mailboxes are monsters and are chasing him. His crew confirms that they are monsters and he rides his ass off. It's a long article but it's incredible and totally f-in insane

    The beers in Deckers will make riding the unicorns into the sunset much more fun, Flowtron. That or just lasso Rontele and make him pull you along....

    I'm surprisingly not nervous and I probably should be, particularly after Nate was crushing me yesterday on his SS. I am more afraid of the Rontele "icing" ambush that will happen at some unknown location on the route.
