5-Day Intensive Bikerafting on Rivers Course
Spend one day learning intermediate bikerafting skills on the Animas or Upper Dolores (above the town of Dolores in the mountains) and then four days riding the Rim Rocker Trail and paddling the San Miguel and Lower Dolores rivers. Some paddling experience preferred (rafting or kayaking OK). Or you can take an extra day of packrafting training the day before this course starts. You will need general backcountry skills, bikepacking experience and to be fit. Can you ride 20 to 30 miles on dirt roads per day with a loaded bicycle? Can you paddle 20+ miles per day. This is not the course for the faint of heart. Expect strenuous climbs and long days.
Price: $2000, includes packrafts, PFDs, helmets, paddles, all food (breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Ranch and all backcountry meals, snacks, beverages), permits, glamping in canvas tents or the cabin at Scullbinder Ranch. Price includes limited adult beverages. Does not include eating out.
