Ride the Rockies 2023 Route Map


Riders will pedal for six days, climbing 26,890 ft with overnights in Fort Collins, Grand Lake, Winter Park, Gilpin County, and two nights in Estes Park.  This year's marquee climbs include Big Thompson Canyon, Trail Ridge Summit, and Berthoud Bass.  Plus, there is an optional 10-mile loop just north of the venue on Day 2 that, if tackled, will bump the total event mileage to 318 miles.


During and between those grueling ascents is a non-stop barrage of postcard-worthy scenery.  This year's route serves up panoramic views of the Mummy Range, rolls past the majestic Long's Peak, weaves through tall canyon walls along the Big Thompson River, and much more! Add it all up, and this will truly be a bike riding adventure of a lifetime.
