The 2019 route is a wrap. Please look for 2020 details soon

Perfect for those not selected to participate in The Denver Post “The Ride the Rockies”!  Only ..... a week earlier with extra options and added attractions. What a great route in Central Colorado. This  2019 loop starts and ends in Gunnison, CO. We hit the ski resorts of Crested Butte, Monarch, Aspen and Snowmass, as we ride in and through the Collegiate and Elk Mtn ranges. Five mountain passes, 445 miles and 31,000 of climbing. Great riding!

Cycle of Life Adventures provides the same riding challenges as the RTR, but our group size is small (7-12) and every night we stay in nice motels and eat dinner out as a group at the finer restaurants in town. You won't be a part of the large RTR group but rather part of a small intimate group. Our 15 passenger support vehicle and at least 2 guides, with one being a mechanic, will be on the road with riders during the duration of each daily ride. And, at any time you may take the option of catching a lift in the van.
