Mission Statement

The mission of Denver Post Community is to improve and enrich the quality of life in our community through support of programs that benefit children and youth; arts and culture; education and literacy; and the provision of basic human services. In 2011, The Denver Post Community Foundation was established as a separate 501(c)(3) organization and serves to broaden the reach of the Posts’ philanthropic giving. At that time, Ride The Rockies became a Signature Event of The Denver Post Community Foundation and helps support nonprofit agencies that work to improve the lives of Coloradans in the towns hosting Ride The Rockies.

Description

The 32nd Tour will showcase the communities of Alamosa, Pagosa Springs, Durango, Ridgway (supported by Ouray), 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. Keeping to tradition, the course will feature some of Colorado’s most scenic and breathtaking views. 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. Cyclists will be treated to some of Colorado’s finest communities that host the Tour and the introduction of a new host town, Ridgway.
