riding the rockies on a bicycle tour in colorado

In my humble opinion, CRMBT is the best bike tour in Colorado. Unfortunately, not everyone who would enjoy such a tour has heard of the Colorado Rocky Mountain Bike Tour. Even folks in Colorado seem unaware that there's another tour besides Ride The Rockies and Bicycle Tour Of Colorado. Those two that almost every cyclist has heard of, are held each June. CRMBT is held in August, which gives even riders from cooler climes a longer training season. I love that it's in August and I love that it's not too big. With a cap of 500 riders it's scheduled for it's seventh running in 2013. They've announced a great route for next year and are offering an early bird discount through the end of September. So get over there and sign up for a great tour. And tell all your friends to check it out too.


  1. Sounds like fun!

    Thanks for the post!

  2. Berthoud Pass reminds me of Gilles Berthoud!
    Peace :)

  3. Our family of three adults is planning a bicycle tour (of adventure and utility) from our son's home at Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon to Phoenix, Arizona. We will be departing on Sunday morning Christmas Eve day so we think traffic will be lower. We are unsure how to best navigate ourselves through the city as well as what best route to take once out of the city as we cross California and into Arizona. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated
