Green Jersey Awards

Back again in 2017 are the ZeroHero Green Jerseys, in partnership with CO2 Forestry and Suncor Energy! Each day limited edition green jerseys will be handed out to cyclists who embrace and support Ride The Rockies’ Tread Lightly initiatives. Be on the lookout for the RTR Green Rider throughout the course of the day. You could be the winner of the next Green Jersey!

Put Waste in its Place

By taking a moment to properly sort your waste at one of the many ZeroHero waste recovery stations, you make it possible to recycle and compost 80% or more of the waste produced by RTR.

Reduce and Reuse

Consider packing a set of a reusable plates and utensils to help us reduce our waste!

Offset your Carbon Emissions

Ride The Rockies has made a commitment to be 100% carbon neutral. All carbon emissions from the production of the ride will be offset by Colorado-based CO₂ Forestry®.

You, too, can participate in this effort by offsetting your personal travel to and from the event. Check out the map and see your estimated carbon offset amount based on the geographic area in which your departure city is located. Then click the CO₂ Forestry® Carbon Offset Button to purchase your own high-quality, third-party verified, VCS carbon standard offsets for your travel.

Thank you for doing your part to reduce your carbon emissions and protect the planet.
