“Each year, we look forward to RTR because it gives us an opportunity to discover some of the most beautiful places on Earth. Thanks to 8 years of RTR, I have visited more towns in Colorado than I have in any other state. Each city/town has a unique charm, beauty and hospitality. The ride is well organized, the volunteers are AH-MAZING and the support staff are excellent. However challenging the ride may be, the breathtaking views from the handlebars more than make up for it. Thanks to the entire RTR crew for putting on a great event.”

“Absolutely loved this ride! Discovering and rediscovering my home state in a challenging fashion! Superbly run too; logistics the military could appreciate! Beautiful and challenging; days I’ll never forget and hope to do again! A rite of passage for any Colorado native…and those from abroad of course too!!!”
