Ride the Rockies

The 35th Annual Ride the Rockies Bicycle Tour features the stunning roads of southwest Colorado, with this year’s start and finish situated in Durango. Enjoy cycling and safety seminars, live entertainment, and a beer garden in each host community.

Along the way are challenging uphill encounters with Lizard Head Pass, Red Mountain Pass, Molas Pass, and Coal Bank Pass, which together account for the bulk of the route’s 28,484 feet of climbing.
