Cyclists know about Moab; they know it as the home of the Slickrock Trail, the Mecca of mountain bikers. What many don't realize is Moab has some of the best road biking in the world. There are hundreds of miles of paved roads in and out of the world-class scenery that is known by every adventure seeker globally.
The Festival rides the best of the best: 1) Arches National Park, 2) Along the mighty Colorado River, 3) Dead Horse Point and back.
The four rides of the Festival highlight Moab's different riding opportunities. Two days follow the mighty Colorado River corridor, both up-stream and downstream. The other two days leave the valley and climb the beautiful canyon roads into redrock country visiting Dead Horse Point State Park and Arches National Park.
From the bike seat you embrace the landscape, feeling the contours as gravity tugs on your tires, challenging you to climb and daring you to descend. You'll appreciate the grand scale of this place once you've ventured far from town under your own 'skinny' power down byways known only to a lucky few. Join the fun and adventurous group of riders through Canyon Country.
Channeling the energy riding through the grandeur of Moab's canyon country is bound to inspire. For most riders, cycling is more than just a release; it can help define a deeper sense of purpose. To add to that purpose, the Skinny Tire Festival was created. It is an annual fundraiser to benefit cancer survivorship programs. Write a check, seek out sponsors and fight cancer.
A hundred miles of history pass under your wheels as you bicycle down the ancient Turquoise Trail through the old mining towns of Madrid and Golden, across the mineral rich Ortiz and San Pedro Mountains, across the Estancia Valley through the villages of Cedar Grove and Stanley and on to the very old village of Galisteo, and 100 miles after you start, wheel back into Old Santa Fe.
You will not want to miss the excitement and camaraderie of the 29th annual pilgrimage to Castle Rock for one of the Rocky Mountain region’s premier cycling festivals. Whether you are six or sixty, prefer to ride on the road or the dirt, there is a course for cyclists of all abilities. All of the rides start and finish at The Douglas County Fair Grounds in Castle Rock.
The Buffalo Bicycle Classic is a cycling fundraiser. Since 2003, more than $1.6 million in scholarships have been awarded to promising students in CU-Boulder’s College of Arts and Sciences. The ride is the single largest source of scholarships within the CU College of Arts and Sciences, which is the largest and oldest college at the university.
