The Course


All cyclists will start and finish at the Grand Junction 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 hang a right and wind their way back to downtown by way of quaint country roads and a jaunt through the Redlands.  Learn more here.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride.

Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
