CYCLING EVENTS

CAA continues to work to create connections in our community.  Building understanding and meaningful connections between cyclists and agriculture is an important goal.  CAA remains focused on increasing appreciation for diverse groups and building a strong sense of community.  CAA is proud to have a long standing relationship with Moots Cycles and new in 2019 the Steamboat Gravel bike race.  During both of these events, CAA works to provide communication with land owners along the bike routes and provide education about the critical importance of agriculture with the recreation community.

The Moots-Colorado Ranch Rally will not be held in 2021 due to continuing COVID precautions.  Look for this fun event in 2022!

SBT GRVL is Coming
Sunday, August 15, 2021
Steamboat Gravel (SBT GRVL) is a world-class gravel race experience held in and around the magnificent Steamboat Springs. The unique combination of the quiet roads surrounding a thriving resort town create a setting for an incredible gravel bike race. With the fundamental goal of inclusiveness, we want to focus not only on the race, but a fantastic weekend away with family and friends. The beauty of the mountains (not to mention the camaraderie with fellow cyclists) as well as the basic challenge of covering these gravel roads on two wheels is something that will not soon be forgotten.
CAA is proud to be one of the three local nonprofit organizations chosen to receive a portion of the race proceeds.  Funds are used to help support programs in the Yampa Valley that directly impact local agriculture.

The 2021 race is sold out, but watch for Ranch Tours, Farm to Table dinner and an opportunity to connect with local ag during race weekend.

AG APPRECIATION WEEK

Join us for Ag Appreciation Week
March 21 – 28, 2021

Ag Appreciation Week (including National Ag Day) is a time to recognize and celebrate the importance of agriculture. Agriculture provides most everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis. National and local efforts educate millions of consumers and ask “Where would YOU be without agriculture? Naked and Hungry!” Since 2013 Ag Week has become CAA’s largest fund raising effort. Area businesses, individuals and organizations sponsor our efforts with annual membership contributions and sponsorships. Please consider joining us and support local ag!

Ag Week started locally with a desire to acknowledge National Ag Day, but has since turned into a week long celebration of all things agriculture in the Yampa Valley!  It is also CAA’s largest fund raising effort with more than 100 area businesses aligning themselves with local agriculture and CAA’s mission to promote and support ag. In 2020 over $30,000 was raised in support of CAA.

We can’t do it alone, so please consider adding your business or personal support today!

FOUR WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

DONATE

Businesses can make a sponsorship contribution and individuals can join CAA with a membership contribution.
