Adult Kokopelli Trail Challenge Ride!


An Epic three-day adult mountain bike adventure to Moab, UT, benefiting Trips for Kids Denver/Boulder. 


This is a journey through the lands of the mythical “Kokopelli” or wandering flute player exemplified in Southwest rock art. Our route ranges from singletrack to slickrock, aspens to pinyon pines and offers sights that will wow your senses and terrain that will definitely test your riding skills.

The Kokopelli Trail begins with challenging singletrack, leading to fun, rugged 4 wheel drive trails that touch periodically on the Colorado River. From the Top of the World we descend into Fisher Valley and Onion Creek Canyon, one of the most beautiful and colorful spots in Moab’s Canyon Country

  • Arrive Thursday evening in Fruita,CO September 25
  • Meet at trailhead 7:30 am Friday morning, September 26

Why: Each day of the “TFK Challenge Ride” is its own epic ride, testing the endurance of our adult supporters in the same way our programs challenge Denver and Boulder’s underserved youth. The weekend of riding and camping promises to be a fun positive, and personally motivating experience for all. Proceeds from this pledge ride benefit TFKD/B’s cycling based programs that build the health and boost the confidence of over 1,000 underserved youth each year.

The Challenge: Help TFKD/B connect over 1,500 young people with a positive outdoor experience and the joys of mountain biking by joining this annual epic ride! We are challenging participants to raise or donate a minimum of $500 in contributions to TFKD/B.

All TFKD/B Challenge participants will receive a TFK “Ride Leader” jersey, compliments of Primal Wear.
