Tour of the Moon

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.

Two Courses

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.
