Thank You
Thank you for participating in Ride The Rockies 30th Anniversary Tour, benefitting The Denver Post Community Foundation! Over the course of seven days and 464 miles you were likely tested physically and mentally, but in the end, we hope your journey was both rewarding and inspiring. From GJ to Westcliffe this year’s Tour featured some of Colorado’s most dramatic landscapes in the Colorado National Monument, the Grand Mesa, the Black Canyon, Cottonwood Pass and the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park. Along the way we hope you caught up with some old friends, made new friends and left with memories that will last a lifetime. It was a week we will look back upon fondly and the finish line celebration in Westcliffe couldn’t have been more perfect! Enjoy the rest of your summer, keep the rubber side down and we’ll see you in 2016!

Tour Coverage
Ride The Rockies was all over social media during ride week! From exchanging photos with hundreds of Instagramers to tweeting and posting on Facebook, it wasn't hard for riders to stay plugged in. Fans back home stayed connected through pictures posted along the route, while riders participated in our daily photo contest during the ride. Using #RideTheRockies on Instagram and Twitter allowed everyone to join in the conversation. More than ever before, riders and RTR staff alike are using social media to connect, share and participate in Ride The Rockies!

Recognizing our Sponsors & Volunteers
Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors and volunteers who made this years Ride The Rockies possible. Without the support of our sponsors along with the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, the Tour would not be possible. To view our 2015 sponsors, click here.
Pedal The Plains
While Ride The Rockies has concluded for 2015, there are still a number of great cycling events to round out your season. Riders of all speeds and ages are invited to join The Denver Post and the state of Colorado for the 4th annual Pedal The Plains; a one-of-a-kind, end-of-season, cycling celebration! Taking place September 18-20, 2015 in the Eastern Plains cities of Julesburg, Holyoke and Sterling, riders will have the opportunity to connect with locals to learn about the history, culture, landscape and wildlife of Colorado’s Plains. This is a great way to celebrate all that cycling has to offer while enjoying plenty of farm-to-table meals and participating in local festivities.
