End of the Road? Ride The Rockies Canceled for 2024

The cherished Colorado cycling event, Ride The Rockies, has been canceled for 2024, casting doubt on its future. This annual tour, a staple since 1986, traditionally saw over 2,000 cyclists navigating varying routes through Colorado’s scenic high country each summer. Unfortunately, due to insufficient registrations, this year's event, which was scheduled for June 9-15 with stops including Steamboat Springs and Fruita, will not proceed.

Organizers expressed their deep appreciation for the towns, participants, sponsors, and volunteers who have supported the event over the past 37 years. The decision to cancel comes despite the ride's long history of community engagement and participant loyalty, with many riders returning year after year. Originally launched by The Denver Post during the cycling boom of the mid-80s, the event has seen participants tackle daily rides between 60 to 80 miles, starting from places like Grand Junction and ending in Denver.

As the event assesses potential paths forward, the organizers are exploring the best options to perhaps revive this beloved ride. Participants who had already registered for this year’s event are advised to check their messages for further instructions, including details about refunds.
