About

Hello Everyone!

The 32nd Ride The Rockies will showcase the communities of Alamosa, Pagosa Springs, Durango, Ridgway, Montrose, Gunnison, and Salida. Beginning in Alamosa, the 'Gateway to Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes’, the ride will traverse through some of the same mountain passes made famous by the historic Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. From Alamosa, cyclists will cover 447 miles and ascend over 32,000’ vertical feet, all the way to the 'Heart of the Rockies’ in Salida. Highlights of the route include: Wolf Creek Pass, Pagosa Hot Springs, Yellowjacket Pass, the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Hesperus Hill, Coal Bank Pass, Molas Pass, Red Mountain Pass, Ouray Hot Springs, Cerro Summit, Blue Mesa Reservoir, and Monarch Pass.

Aid Station Position: While working within the unique Aid Station footprint, provide a safe, friendly place where riders can rest, socialize, hydrate, eat, obtain information and prepare for the next leg of the day's ride while minimizing the impact upon that location.

Road Marshal Postion: To alert cyclists to hazards, upcoming turns and conditions that they need to navigate to continue safely on the designated route.

Volunteers receive: staff wear for the week (t-shirts, tank tops, long sleeve, jacket, pullover, hat, water bottle & sunglasses), food stipend, free hotels & gas card.
