Can’t do the full week of the 2018 Ride The Rockies but still want to be part of it all? Join us for the Steamboat Loop Day on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.
It is a great loop that really showcases Yampa River Valley as well as providing some of the challenges that is part of every Ride The Rockies routes. This loop is the same loop as Stage 1 of the 2015 USA Pro Challenge except the direction is changed. The terrain is rolling along the route but riders will hit the “Three Witches,” a series of hills on the southeast corner of the trail on Twentymile Road near Oak Creek. This will provide some challenge but fun. Oak Creek Canyon will provide the open valley meadows, with mostly flat, mostly straight highway to the south. Two well stocked aid stations with Skratch Labs hydration and Steamboat based Honey Stinger waffles, plus food vendors to supplement. At the Finish you will be greeted by a community meal, shower trucks, Odell Beer and some great entertainment so you can hang out and enjoy.
