THIS YEAR THE WYOMING OUTDOOR COUNCIL’S POPULAR RIDE THE RED BIKE TOUR WILL TAKE US THROUGH THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE RED DESERT IN THE JACK MORROW HILLS, which is home to outstanding scenery, pronghorn, the Steamboat desert elk herd, sand dunes, and various other treasures.

The mountain-bike ride will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 27, about 20 miles north of Farson, between Farson and Lander.

As always, this year’s Ride the Red will be a fun, casual, and family-friendly event—with something for riders of all skill levels.

We hope you can join us!

  • We will meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 27 at our trailhead, located on County Road 21, 5.8 miles southeast of its junction with Wyoming Highway 28.
  • This access road will be marked for your convenience. The meeting spot will serve as the parking area, and low-clearance vehicles (so long as the roads are dry) can safely make it to this point.
  • Routes will consist of a 25-mile option and a 42-mile option. Both routes start and end at the same point. Please feel free to come and do a shorter out-and-back route if you want.
  • Riders who have RSVP’d will receive more details, so please watch your email inboxes.
