Women’s Weekend on Wheels
This weekend is a weekend of riding, pampering, laughing, enjoying good food and beverage and fun.
The riding will focus on mountain biking and cyclocross. Yes, cyclocross! That crazy type of bicycle racing where you sometimes have to carry your bike! This is the perfect weekend to work with some professional female cyclists and hone your skills! You can go home and show off your new skills to your family. Guaranteed they will be awestruck!
The weekend will be held at the Waunita Hot Springs Ranch, located high in the Colorado Rockies at an elevation of 8,946 ft., is 10 miles west of the Continental Divide. The ranch is surrounded by Gunnison National Forest land and summer pasture. U.S. Forest permits and private leases enable us to ride on, pasture and otherwise enjoy use of hundreds of thousands of acres in eastern Gunnison County.
The remote location means guests aren’t disturbed by passing traffic. Usually the only creatures you encounter while riding forest trails are occasional deer and elk. And the stars are always bright in Waunita Country! The lodges are located at the edge of the forest overlooking Tomichi Dome and a high “mountain park.” Cattle can be seen grazing in the Waunita Valley.
You’ll find the guest rooms clean and cozy. Home cooked meals will be provided – from eggs, bacon and biscuits to steak and baked potatoes you’ll enjoy some of the best “from scratch”, homemade meals you’ve ever had, served family style. Of course, special diets will be accommodated!
But there’s more than just eating, sleeping and riding. At the end of the day, you’ll find the swimming pool one of our guests favorite meeting places. Just like the Waunita of old, the 95 degree, natural spring-fed pool is a relaxing way to wind down from a day full of fun. The 35×90 ft pool is one of the largest private pools in Colorado. With an adjacent bath house and hot tub, there’s plenty of room for swimming, splashing and relaxing.
