Important changes in the registration process for 2018. Please check the box at the bottom indicating you have read each bullet.
- The race is capped per the USFS. When the cap has been received the race registration will close.
- Registration is $50 plus a fundraising commitment of $200 is required to complete your registration and entry into the race. The average fundraising per racer was over $500 in 2015, 2016 & 2017!

- All registration transactions have a service fee. Donations also have a service fee, but the donor will have the opportunity to tell us who they want to pay the service fee, themselves or the HUNDO. We hope that most donors will elect to pay the service fee themselves, as the HUNDO is a non-profit organization raising funds for kids, bikes and trails.
- Requests for category changes will not be accepted after Friday May 25, 2018
- No refunds will be issued for registration or donation dollars.

Hello Legacy Bailey HUNDO Racers! (Those that raced last year)
Dear 2017 Racers,
Thank you for your participation in the 2017 Bailey HUNDO.
You may have heard... in 2018 there will again be a 50 mile course, the Bailey HUNDitO! Both the 100 mile and 50 mile mountain bike races will take place on Saturday, June 16th, 2018. The HUNDO and HUNDitO racers will commit to raise at least $250 each by June 6th to support bicycling, trails and youth related causes in Colorado. The funds racers raised next year will benefit three nonprofit partners to the HUNDO: Trips for Kids Denver, the Colorado High School Cycling League, and the Colorado Mountain Bike Association; as well as support the effort to build trails and publicize the riding in the Bailey area.
For more information and updates on the HUNDO, please follow us on Twitter @baileyhundo, like us on Facebook, or email us at email@example.com. We strive to educate citizens and businesses in the Platte Canyon and trail enthusiasts everywhere about Bailey’s potential as the Front Range’s perfect recreational-trails hub. The conceptual trails “master plan,” commissioned by the HUNDO and COMBA, casts a vision of Bailey as an economically thriving trail-sports destination following in the footsteps of economic revitalization stories like Fruita, CO.
We have been doing some work behind the scenes to gear up for 2018 - a website upgrade, timing systems, finish line campground, pedestrian bridge across the river at the finish line, additional trail in a privagte meadow, automobile bridge across the river to gain access to the campground, fostering a stronger partnership with Bailey and Park County community members, adding a 50 mile race and hiring new staff! Hopefully our efforts will show through in the next few months and on race day in June.
Legacy racers will select their name from a pull down list to speed their registration process into the 2018 Bailey HUNDO beginning January 15th at noon. If you don't see your name on the Legacy Racer List and did race last year, please contact registration directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Use your Legacy racer privilege by February 7th or lose it.
We hope to see you in 2018!
The Bailey HUNDO board and Staff
Update Time for racers!
1. To be a financially sustainable event, and be able to remain faithful to our nonprofit mission of supporting youth biking initiatives around the state and trail building in the Platte Canyon area, the Board has decided it will leave in place the minimum racer donation of $250. Tnhis year the $250 must be paid by June 6th, or your spot in the race will not be held. There will be no flexibility on that number for racers NEW to the race in 2018. The average per racer was more like $500 in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017! If you have questions please contact us at email@example.com.
NOTE: We are requiring a $50 registration fee up-front to reserve your spot. You will have until June 6th to raise the additional funds ($200+) to meet your pledge.
2. Sponsors supplement the generous racer donations we receive, the HUNDO is looking for companies to help sponsor the race this year and partner with us to further our mission. Our goal is to bring in at least $300,000! Do you have a company that can help us meet this goal Please contact the ride director at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can give you more information.
All of us working on the Bailey HUNDO want to thank you again for your continued support and understanding as we work to grow our small but mighty race. Your input and suggestions are valued and appreciated, so please continue to help make us aware of what we can be doing better. Looking forward to having you on that starting line again this year!
Rust-free chains and tailwinds,
The Bailey HUNDO team
