The 2014 Ride The Rockies bicycle tour route has officially been set. Over the span of six days, 473 miles and 28,265 vertical feet, participants will test their endurance by summiting six passes – Berthoud, Muddy, Rabbit Ears, Tennessee, Fremont and Loveland – along with cyclist favorites Battle Mountain, Swan Mountain and Lookout Mountain. “Our 29th tour showcases some of Colorado’s finest communities; a number of which are renowned for world-class skiing, but it’s their summertime activities that make them desirable destinations year-round,” said Chandler Smith, Tour Director.

Avon is certainly one such community. On June 11th, the Ride the Rockies cyclists will travel 82 miles from Steamboat to Avon by way of State Bridge. The tour will stop overnight in Avon before traveling another 75 miles on June 12th from Avon to Breckenridge, over Battle Mountain, Red Cliff Bridge, Tennessee Pass and Fremont Pass.
