Applications for Ride the Rockies 2022 is now closed. Please contact us to receive updates for next year's event. 

The 36th annual Ride the Rockies is a challenging point-to-point affair featuring two 100-plus-mile days, four trips above 11,000 feet, five Continental Divide crossings, and an historic first time spin through Glenwood Canyon along the banks of the Colorado River. The 2022 event, which runs June 11-17, starts at Copper Mountain and ends along Colorado’s Front Range in Golden.

Ride the Rockies 2022 Route Map

In between, riders will pedal 436 miles and climb more than 27,000 feet with overnights in Glenwood Springs, Basalt, Salida, and two nights in Breckenridge. This year’s marquee climbs include Tennessee, Freemont, Independence, Hoosier, and Loveland passes. Plus there’s an optional ascent of Ute Pass on Day 5 that if tackled bumps total event mileage to 476 miles and increases total climbing to just under 30,000 feet.

During—and between—those grueling ascents is a non-stop barrage of postcard worthy scenery. Indeed, this year’s route serves up panoramic views of towering Mount Elbert, traverses the majestic Red Cliff Arch Bridge, spins up the tranquil Roaring Fork Valley, traces the shores of the Arkansas River, rolls past the majestic Ten Mile Range, circles Dillon Reservoir, and much more. Add it all up and this will truly be the bike riding adventure of a lifetime.
