This summer, bike enthusiasts can take on the challenge of conquering the Rocky Mountains on three distinct bike tours with The Eight Passes. This limited-time offer, brought to you by The Ride Collective and Colorado’s Ride, features a total of 468 miles and over 36,000 feet of elevation across Fremont, Tennessee, Vail, Palo Flechado, Bobcat, Coal Bank, Molas, and Wolf Creek passes.
The package includes two one-day epic cycling tours: the Copper Triangle and Enchanted Circle, as well as a five-day adventure in the San Juan Mountains on Colorado’s Ride. This unique experience includes a ride on the historic Silverton/Durango railroad, making it a must-do for any cycling enthusiast.
By signing up for The Eight Passes, you can save $150 (plus tax and fees) compared to signing up for each ride individually. However, this offer is only available until June 1st, or until the rides reach capacity, so don’t wait too long to sign up.
The Copper Triangle ride covers 79 miles and climbs 6,500 feet, with breathtaking views of the Mosquito and Gore mountain ranges, historic training grounds for the 10th Mountain Division, the Climax Mine, and the Battle Mountain Bridge. This ride takes place on August 5th.
Next up is The Enchanted Circle Bicycle Tour, a scenic ride through Northern New Mexico, taking place on August 12th. This ride offers an 85 or 100-mile option, climbing 6,000 or 6,900 feet, respectively. You’ll experience some of the most spectacular peaks in New Mexico, including the iconic mountain town of Red River, the Village of Questa, and the four-season resort of Angel Fire.
After these two rides, you’ll be well-prepared to tackle Colorado’s Ride, taking place from August 28th through September 1st. This five-day adventure in the San Juan Mountains is limited to 500 riders and includes three nights in Durango and two in Pagosa Springs. You’ll take on some of the most remote and rugged parts of Colorado, with plenty of opportunities to relax and soak in the Pagosa Hot Springs.
All tours include full route support, stocked aid stations, music, and food.
