Rules of the Event

  • As a participant you are required to obey all Colorado traffic laws and rules of the road
  • This is not a race; rather it is a self-paced ride. Cut-off times will be strictly enforced. The Finish line officially closes at 6:30 p.m. We will be doing a sweep of the course in addition to helping out riders who do not make a cut off time.
  • ANSI and/or SNELL approved helmets are required for all riders.
  • You will need to show your event bib number to use the aid stations and at the BBQ. (Tickets will be issued for additional meals and guests).
  • Please make sure both you and your bike are ready to cover the full distance of this ride.

  • Please be courteous and leave your private support vehicles in town. We offer support and aid stations, so we can all ride with minimal traffic.
