The 27th annual Ride the Rockies, a bicycle tour through the Rocky Mountains, has announced that it’s route will take it from the historic town of Gunnison and will end in Fort Collins. Ride the Rockies Website states that;

Cyclists will begin their journey in the historic city of Gunnison and ascend McClure Pass, Independence Pass, Fremont Pass, Ute Pass and Milner Pass before crossing the finish line at Odell Brewing Company in Ft.Collins.

The fact that the ride is finishing in Fort Collins brings about 2,000 people into our town on that day and is expected to generate significant revenue and interest in Fort Collins.

I spoke with Jim Clark, President and CEO of the Fort Collins Convention and Visitors Bureau and he related how

This is where the celebration happens. When people get to Odell, they’ll probably have a lot of their family and friends to meet them and greet them and congratulate them as they cross the finish line. There will be music and TRI 102.5 is going to be there and we’re going to have a great time and welcome everybody to Fort Collins and thank them for coming to our community and seeing it and we hope they’ll come back.
