Every June, we look forward to having more than 2000 riders come from around the world to explore the Colorado Rocky Mountains on bicycles. Unfortunately, after evaluating the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and the safety of our riders, the 35th Annual Denver Post Ride the Rockies will be postponed until June of 2021.   To ensure the health and well-being of everyone involved we have decided that postponement is the best course of action to take at this time.  We do greatly appreciate your patience as we have been putting the plan into place.  Ride The Rockies is a large, multi-day event, and it was important to work through our next steps with the many organizations, companies and communities involved.

We are pleased to announce that we will be doing the 2020 planned route in 2021.  It is a wonderful route and we know how much everyone was looking forward to it.  The 2021 dates are as follows:

Prologue:   June 11 – 12, 2021
Registration Day – June 12, 2021
Day 1 – Durango Loop – Sunday, June 13, 2021
Day 2 – Durango to Cortez – Monday, June 14, 2021
Day 3 – Cortez to Norwood – Tuesday, June 15, 2021
