Tour of the Moon rides on, despite federal shutdown
Our friends at Tour of the Moon announced that the ride will go on this Sat., Oct. 5 regardless of the federal government shutdown, which has closed all national parks and monuments. The ride’s course travels through the Colorado National Monument.
Organizers have worked on an alternative course just in case the park is still closed, and they will announce which route will be in effect at noon on Fri., Oct. 4 unless the federal government reopens before that.
Tour of the Moon is a Bicycle Colorado Event Member. Ride organizers make a per-rider donation to support our work, including keeping roads open and safe for bicycling events in Colorado.
