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.

  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours at @veloswap on Saturday, November 2 and help us make our 10,000 member movement even stronger! Click the link in our bio to sign up for your shift. 
Let’s bring more members to the movement and further strengthen our voice. Our goal is 200 new members in one BIG day. See you there! #bicyclecolorado
  • Today is #InternationalBossDay, so the #BicycleColorado team all decided to dress up as Pete—and take pictures sitting at his desk! Enjoy!
