Think you know coal? Then you probably know that Wyoming is the nations number one producer of coal. Then you also know that Campbell County, Wy is the leading producer in the state. Well then, smart ash. Did you know that these coal mines need roads for the miners to get the job done? Not just any roads, GRAVEL ROADS! The number of roads to explore in Northeastern Wyoming is so inviting that it would dang near turn a hybrid driving Portlandian into a coal miner from Beulah. Talk to anyone who has explored up in Coal Country and they'll tell ya two things; big racks, endless gravel! I'm talking about mule deer antlers, sicko.
The 136 mile gravel loop starts at 6am and is for the totally insane. To make it a little easier on you, there will be 5 stops along the route with aid stations and even a bar to refuel at. Don't miss this epic ride in beautiful Coal Country!
In 1868 the Union Pacific Railroad opened the first coal mine in Wyoming. The history of mining in the area is great but the gravel is even better. Rolling hills and views as far as the eye can see. The Coal Country Gravel Grinder is having its afterparty at Big Lost Meadery! Get all sore from riding bike and then celebrate your victory with a Crazy Woman.
