Fort Collins

Just an hour north of Denver perched just before the Rocky Mountains is where this years Ride The Rockies will start and finish. This vibrant Colorado town is a bicyclist and beer connoisseurs heaven and an incredible place to begin and wrap up our ride. It’s home to Colorado State University, world famous breweries like New Belgium and Odell’s, endless outdoor activities and recreational trails. The downtown area hosts numerous festivals and events throughout the year and offers some of Colorado’s best restaurants!

Our prologue ride and experience will be hosted in this wonderful town and will include a cocktail party at New Belgium, a dinner at The Lincoln Center and a gnarly ride up to the beautiful Horsetooth Reservoir. It will be an experience you will not want to miss out on! Fort Collins is a haven for cyclists, its extensive bike-friendly infrastructure boasts over 280 miles of bike lanes and trails. From the Cache la Poudre River, Horsetooth reservoir, and the overall cycling culture of the Town, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have our rider enjoy this town not once but twice during this years Ride The Rockies.
