Kent Eriksen Tour de Steamboat, Presented by Shimano
The Tour de Steamboat is a one-day, non-competitive ride through northwest Colorado. More information regarding the Tour de Steamboat 2020 will be released soon. Here is information from the 2019 Tour de Steamboat:
The event welcomes cyclists of all ages and abilities! We host four different road ride routes—26, 46, 66 and 116 miles—something for riders of all ages and abilities and new this year, a 72 – 100 mile (TBD) gravel route, something for riders of all ages and abilities. Names like Rabbit Ears Pass, Gore Pass, Yellow Jacket Pass, Stagecoach, Yampa and Oak Creek dot this incredible route. We are a non-competitive event, and participants are encouraged to ride at their own pace and enjoy the majestic scenery in our part of the world! We offer superb aid stations, support, and end of the ride barbecue and beer garden with local microbrews.
Capping off the day is an expo and western BBQ with live music and 5 local microbreweries serving refreshing, hand-crafted beer (BBQ and beer included in registration fee).
Ride is limited to 1,000 participants. (No waiting in line at aid stations at this event!) Early bird registration rates end May 31, 2018. Click here to learn more and register.

Tour de Steamboat is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit entity with its entire focus on raising money for local, Routt County community non-profit organizations. These beneficiary agencies provide staff to plan and market the event, implement additional fundraising mechanisms, and assist with event operations. The beneficiaries are also committed to paying it forward.
Every year, the beneficiary non-profits choose other local beneficiary organizations to receive a portion of the event proceeds. In 2018, the Tour de Steamboat beneficiaries granted $5,000 from the proceeds of the event between four additional local organizations: SOROCO Preschool for playground equipment, The Town of Oak Creek for school aged children programming, SOS Outreach youth service group Grand Futures substance abuse prevention program and the Steamboat Springs Community Assistance Fund critical incident support service.
