Bicycle to Calhan, CO - Listen to Great Gospel Music

Bicycle to Calhan, CO - Listen to Great Gospel Music

I started and coordinate a great a cappella gospel music group that will be singing at the 10th Annual Gospel Grassfest June 28th at 1:00 - FREE THIS YEAR!!

El Paso County Fairgounds in Calhan, Colorado, 30 miles east of Colorado Springs on Highway 24

This would be a great Eastern plains/Black Forest bike ride.

If you are driving to Calhan from the north on I25, exit Founder's Pkwy at Castle Rock and go east to Hwy 86. Stay on it through Elizabeth and before you get to Kiowa, turn right on Elbert Rd. There is a sign for the Peaceful Valley Boy Scout Ranch. This is a beautiful drive all the way to highway 24. Go east to Calhan. The fairgrounds are south of the highway on 10th Street. Coming on I25 from the south, take the Hwy 24 exit east.

An unforgettable 4 days!

All genres of acoustic gospel music - bluegrass, folk, western, country, southern gospel, Celtic, a capella, old time
