Tour of the Moon – cancelled
TotM MISSION CANCELLED
It is with great disappointment to share with you that the 9th Annual Tour of the Moon has been cancelled.
With the current public health concerns of COVID-19, regulations from Mesa County Public Health that limit large gatherings and uncertainty of what future orders will allow, we did not see a practical or safe way to execute the annual event. The health and safety of our cyclists, volunteers, staff and host community is our top priority. Given the current situation, cancelling the ride is the right thing to do.
This decision was not made lightly. The ride has been held for 8 consecutive years, rain or shine. We are grateful to you for your continuous faith in Roll Massif and for expressing your commitment to the ride by purchasing your registration earlier in the year. Thank you for trusting us to make the soundest decision to assure the health and well-being of all concerned. We look forward to hosting you at another Roll Massif event in the future.
The Tour of the Moon was made famous in the 1980’s Coors Classic and later in the cycling movie American Flyers. Today, it continues to be considered one of the premier recreational rides in the western United States. The breathtaking, high desert scenery and beautiful roads make this an epic day of cycling.
The National Forest Service caps our participation at 2,200, and we sell out every year, so sign up now to get your spot! A portion of your registration fee goes to support One Riverfront and Bicycle Colorado.
All cyclists will start and finish at Two Rivers Convention Center in downtown Grand Junction. The ride will begin with a spectacular trek through the Colorado National Monument. After exiting the Monument, riders may elect to tackle a metric century through the beautiful farm country and surrounding areas of Fruita or opt for the classic 41-mile loop back to GJ. Click here to explore the two routes: Metric Century and The Classic Loop (41-mile).
