The Grand Enduro will challenge you on three demanding stages in and around Grand Junction’s Lunch Loops trail system. For those unfamiliar, the nature of these trails is very technical and require expert handling skills as well as solid fitness.
What to expect:
Chunky, desert terrain that’s hard on body and equipment – bring sturdy tires and spare tubes!
Stages will lose significant elevation, but lack sustained steeps – be ready to pedal! However, this is no XC race, so bring your well equipped all-mountain bike. You’ll hate it on some of the punchy, short climbs but wish you were on an even bigger bike at some points!
All stages feature at least a few “moves” – sections of trail that are particularly precarious. Where possible we’ll have go-arounds, however these will generally cost you time! Pre-riding all stages is definitely recommended and required for stages 1 and 3.
25-40 minutes of racing over 7.2 miles of trail. 2.5-4 hours of total ride time covering ~23 miles.

Mingle with bike-minded people and the Grand Junction community while enjoying the area’s wine country and its appreciation for the outdoor enthusiast.

A kick-ass gravel race from Colorado to Utah – and back!
Like no other Gravel on Earth!
Grand Junction – Fruita – Moab
Awesome, Road bike or Mountain Bike – that you did know.
But, driving the 1-70 corridor, looking north, you see a no-man’s-land. Having lived in this region for decades we finally said “What if? What if something is out there?”
We went exploring, and unlike the conquistadors, we found the treasure – Hidden in plain sight.
Mind-blowing terrain, roads, gravel, hills, views, wildlife & epic adventure! Now, you get to find it too.
The best gravel you never knew – Racing from Colorado, across the border to Utah and back.
You are about to find what we found. It’s not no-man’s-land. It’s Desert Gravel “Like no other on Earth!” You’ll never look out ‘there’ the same way again…

Unfortunately in June 2020 we were not able to celebrate the 35th Annual Ride The Rockies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was hard but definitely the right choice and we hope everyone remains safe and well. We are looking forward to hosting more than 2000 riders from around the world to explore the Colorado Rocky Mountains by bicycle in 2021. It is a wonderful route and we know how much everyone was looking forward to it.
Registration for the 2021 Ride The Rockies is open so sign up now.
In 1986, 1,500 cyclists pedaled off on a 300-plus mile citizen’s tour that crossed three mountain passes and became an annual tradition called Ride The Rockies. The tour that Outside Magazine called a “celebration of fitness” now celebrates its 35th year as a beloved Colorado institution sponsored by the Denver Post Community Foundation. Ride The Rockies embraces not only cyclists but the towns, sponsors, volunteers and Colorado residents who enjoy following the annual multi-day event.
While the Tour route changes each year, the benefits and responsibilities of each host community remain the same. Benefits include publicity, positive economic impact, fundraising opportunities and a grant provided to an eligible non-profit agency in each host town by The Denver Post Community Foundation. Cyclists in 2019 spent an average of $250,000 in a 24-hour period in each town and many planned to return at a later date as tourists. Host communities provide alternative lodging, inexpensive community meals and entertainment.
Riders on past Ride The Rockies have represented all 50 states and 18 foreign countries. Ride The Rockies is a non-competitive event open to cyclists of all ages and participants are encouraged to ride at their own pace.
Proceeds from Ride The Rockies benefit The Denver Post Community Foundation. All funds raised are returned directly to Colorado nonprofits.
