The Alpine Bicycle Club, home of the Colorado Rough Riders is dedicated to mixed terrain touring. Touring through the alpine environment in the Rocky Mountain West requires efficient travel on any surface from paved road to single track. All on the same route, with the same bike.
The Alpine Bicycle Club and The Colorado Rough Riders were started by a group of old mountaineers and skiers in Golden Colorado who also love cycling. Mixed terrain travel is simply a way of life for us. Many of us commute daily over mixed terrain. All of us love the alpine environment. And all of us would rather bike than drive a car.
Club membership is free. All skill levels, from novice to professional racer, are welcome. The only requirement is that you love mixed terrain travel in mountain environments. We even accept mountain bikers.
