One of the things I like about RTR is every year the route is different. So over those 8 years I have ridden over most major mountain passes and visited numerous mountain towns in Colorado and yet every year brings something new: new scenery, new experiences and new friends. Each year the route is announced at the official Ride the Rockies Premiere Party in Denver. Riders who are able to attend get the first glimpse at the route midst a preview of the carb-heavy eating and drinking that will take place during the week provided by Maggiano's Little Italy and Odell Brewing Company!
In the past two years I attended and posted/tweeted the route as it was announced live. Unfortunately I will be out of town this year and unable to attend. But don't worry, I will try to figure out a way to get the scoop and pass it along that night so stay tuned here or follow me on Twitter (@REAL_BEEFMAN) if you are interested.
