In its 30th year, RTR will visit two natural wonders in the Colorado National Monument and the Grand Mesa, ascend Cottonwood and Hardscrabble Pass, travel over the highest suspension bridge in the U.S. and traverse along the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.


From wine country to a palynologist’s heaven this year’s Tour has a little something for everyone; communities steeped in Colorado history, rich in recreational opportunities and rooted in western hospitality.


Ride The Rockies is a fully supported tour; from aid stations to tech support; SAG vehicles to medical services; it’s our goal to ensure you have a safe and rewarding week in the saddle. You do the riding, we’ll do the rest!
