The Tour de Steamboat is an annual bicycle event that brings together 1,200 cyclists for a one-day ride through beautiful Northwest Colorado. Names like Rabbit Ears Pass, Gore Pass, Yellow Jacket Pass, Stagecoach, Yampa and Oak Creek dot this incredible route. We host four different road ride routes—26, 46, 66 and 116 miles—something for riders of all ages and abilities and new this year, a 72 – 100 mile (TBD) gravel route, something for riders of all ages and abilities. We are a non-competitive event, and participants are encouraged to ride at their own pace and enjoy the majestic scenery in our part of the world! We offer superb aid stations, support, and end of the ride barbecue and beer garden with local microbrews.
All proceeds from the Tour de Steamboat go directly to our beneficiary non-profits.
The Tour de Steamboat is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit entity with its entire focus on raising money for local, Routt County community non-profit organizations. These beneficiary agencies provide staff to plan and market the event, implement additional fundraising mechanisms, and assist with event operations. The beneficiaries are also committed to paying it forward. Every year, the beneficiary non-profits choose other local beneficiary organizations to receive a portion of the event proceeds. In 2018, the Tour de Steamboat beneficiaries granted $5,000 from the proceeds of the event between four other local organizations: SOROCO Preschool for playground equipment, The Town of Oak Creek for school-aged children programming and the Steamboat Springs Community Assistance Fund critical incident support service.
