The Bailey HUNDO - a not-for-profit event - is a world-class 100-mile endurance mountain bike race that starts and ends in Bailey, Colorado. Money raised by the HUNDO is invested in youth biking initiatives in Colorado, and used to build new trails in the Platte Canyon area that both serve the local community's recreation needs and develop Bailey into a mountain biking destination.
The 2012 event will start at 6 am on Saturday, June 16th.

Starting from the heart of Bailey, the race features over 45 miles of singletrack as it winds from Bailey through the Buffalo Creek Trail system and along the Colorado Trail to the South Platte to Deckers up Stony Creek Pass to Wellington Lake, and to a private meadow along the river - a new festival atmosphere for 2012!
The US Forest Service has again provided us with a permit to allow for 250 select riders to participate in the 3rd annual HUNDO this year. The 2012 Bailey HUNDO is a charity race – with a suggested minimum donation of $250 to participate. There are generous prizes this year including a $5,000 cash purse from Primal Sports to be distributed among the top finishers. All tax deductible donations –minus race costs – will be allocated to assist three amazing mountain bike centric organizations and to support real Bailey area trail development projects.
At this time we are accepting names for the wait list. Registration closes on June 15th.
