Ride The Rockies is an annual bicycle tour that takes 2000 cyclists on a 6-7 day ride on paved roads through Colorado's Rocky Mountains each June. The route is different each year, but always climbs a few challenging mountain passes and showcases Colorado's spectacular scenery. Daily rides can be as short as 35 miles or as long as 100 miles, but generally average 60-65 miles.
The Ride The Rockies registration fee includes camping space, restrooms and showers, transportation of one bag during the tour, shuttle transportation and entertainment in host towns, aid stations, bike repair vans, sag vehicles and medical support on the route, a Ride The Rockies cycling jersey, a water bottle and a tour map book.
Ride The Rockies registration is limited to 2000 riders. Since many more often apply, participants are chosen on a lottery basis. Registration opens in early February, and riders are chosen in late February.
