Biking Bis – Bicycle Touring and More :: 2 Colorado bike tours wrapped up; more on tap later this summer

Two weeks of amazing Rocky Mountain highs are done for bicyclists who rode The Denver Post Ride the Rockies and the Bicycle Tour of Colorado.

Together, the bike tours covered 1,002 miles of Colorado blacktop and summited 14 mountain passes, 7 on each bike ride.

Celebrating its 25th year, Ride the Rockies is one of the oldest mass bicycle tours in the nation, probably surpassed only by the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Around Iowa.

One of this year’s highlights was bicycling along the Rim Rock Drive in the Colorado National Monument. See the video for scenes along the route from Grand Junction to Salida.

Ride the Rockies has become so popular over the years that organizers instituted a lottery to award places among the 2,000 bicyclists that are allowed to ride. The Bicycle Tour of Colorado caps ridership at 1,500; a few vacancies were available in the weeks leading up to the ride that finished today.
