Bicycle in the magnificent Steamboat Springs, Colorado valley and the surrounding mountains. Ride over 20 Mile Road to Oak Creek on Saturday. For those who just have to have more exquisite riding, there is an option to add the Yellow Jacket Pass loop. This is a 55 - 60 mile day with some surprising elevation. We will do Rabbit Ears Pass on Sunday which can be anywhere from 35 – 65 miles. Some folks may want to do a shorter day and ride the Yellow Jacket Pass to Oak Creek route. It is not part of the scheduled tour, but the ride up to Gore Pass could be done on your own. Monday will be the Clark/Steamboat Lake ride. This is an out and back which will allow people to turn around as needed for their plans to return home. Trip can be moderate to advanced / moderate depending on the routes you choose. Maps will be provided for all noted routes. If there are weather considerations, we may switch routes.

On Saturday from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm there will be a social hour at the Nordic Lodge. There are usually some snacks left over, so we will finish them off on Sunday. All other meals are on your own. This tour is not sag supported, so be sure you have all the tools you need for any tire or bike repair – and plenty of food, water and clothes for the weather conditions.
