Leaders: Helen Berkman and Cyndy Klepinger

Planning for a wonderful 5 - 6 day tour to the Colorado River Valley and Colorado’s premier wine district is well underway, with a new twist -- weaving together an Intermediate Ride Group with a Fun Ride Group! The 6 ½-day Intermediate Ride Tour will include Glenwood Canyon, a long-distance ride from Glenwood to Aspen and back, and a challenging ride up to the Grand Mesa. The Fun Ride Group’s 5-day tour will also take in a lovely out and back ride in Glenwood Canyon. The groups will then merge in Grand Junction and reprise Helen’s 2016 Grand Valley Tour to include a classic tour of the vineyards with wine tastings, biking the Colorado National Monument (Rim Rock Drive or the full Tour of the Moon), and a ride along the beautiful Colorado River Trail to Fruita and back. Intermediate and Fun Rides will be offered on each of the three days in Grand Junction.

We’ll be staying at a convenient hotel in Glenwood Springs and at a newly-updated hotel right on Grand Junction’s Main Street, within walking distance of shopping and restaurants. Amenities include free breakfast, pool, fitness center, maps, and bicycles okay inside. Non-riding spouses/partners are welcome. Social events will include a pre-ride meeting, happy hours, wine tastings, picnic lunch in the Monument, and two Group Dinners. More details are available from Helen and Cyndy by emailing either of them at the email addresses below.

Double occupancy cost will be $575 per person for the 5 night Fun Ride Group, and $645 for the 6 night Intermediate Ride Group. Single supplement will be available for additional cost: 5 night group: $425; 6 night group: $550.
