Cycling Seminars


Ride The Rockies will feature a series of cycling seminars that highlight a particular, exciting topic relevant to the biking community. The series will be hosted by Olympic medalist and former pro racer, Ron Kiefel.

 Cycling Seminars & Route Briefings

On 4 of the 6 days there will be a Cycling Seminar that is opened with a Route Briefing for the next day’s ride.   The USGS will also join us for a Q & A about some of the fun geological phenomenons that can be seen on the route such as the Finger Rock on Rte 131 that will be passed on Day 2.  There is a weather update so riders can begin to plan for the next day.   The cycling seminar program is a fun addition to any ride!
