About the PEAKS to Conga Event
Start training and planning for the 12th Annual PEAKS to CONGA bicyclists' fundraiser on Saturday, June 24, 2023.
This fun, non-competitive, fully supported ride starts en masse from Cody Coffee Roasters at 7 am and ends 66 miles later in downtown Shell, Wyoming. Ride some or the entire route ... hence the Conga line!
Support vehicles are available along the route with snacks, water and technical assistance as needed. Recommended gear to carry: spare tubes, water bottle, and sunscreen. Helmets are mandatory!
ONLY designated support vehicles are allowed along the ride route to reduce road congestion and increase safety. If you have family or friends interested in helping along the ride, please let us know.

Over the past 12 years, PEAKS to Conga has raised more than $270,000 to assist cancer patients from all over the Bighorn Basin. Help us again share that kindness to those in need!
