Community Meals


Meals will be your responsibility, but plenty of food options will be available both on the route and in each of the host communities.

Something new for 2021!   We will be traveling with Serendipity Catering for the 2021 Ride The Rockies.    Serendipity will provide a meal plan that includes options for breakfast, dinner and bag lunches during the event.  We have made this change to:

  • ensure consistent COVID safe protocols at all meals
  • reduce the stress of communities and local restaurants as they recuperate from a year of COVID
