More about Ride the Rockies
Since 1986, the Ride the Rockies cycling tour has been bringing not only a non-competitive spirit, but also a chance to spread wealth around Colorado.
Founded by the Denver Post and due to its popularity nationally, this tour has not only provided riders with a formidable challenge, but it has also helped aid charitable causes across the state via the Denver Post Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation. Since the program officially began in 2001, over $585,000 has been granted to towns throughout the state via its philanthropic effort to help support nonprofit agencies that work to improve the lives of Coloradans in the towns hosting Ride the Rockies. Additionally, Denver Post Community Foundation Grant Program allows RTR to provide a $5,000 grant to a deserving nonprofit in each Ride The Rockies host community.
Volunteer opportunities are available for those that want to ensure that Ride the Rockies goes off without a hitch. Find out more information about the Ride the Rockies on their website. Registrationis on a first-come first-served basis, so be sure to sign-up quick!
