Tour of the Moon

Ride the Moon

The Tour of the Moon was made famous in the 1980’s Coors Classic and later in the cycling movie American Flyers. Its legacy continues as one of the premier road cycling events in the western United States.

The National Park Service caps our participation at 2,200, and we sell out every year, so sign up now to ensure your spot! A portion of your registration fee will go to support One Riverfront and Bicycle Colorado.



  • Registration is limited to the first 2,200 riders, so register early to be guaranteed a spot!  This event has sold out many times in the past.

  • Ages 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Tandems are allowed on the course, but each person on the tandem bicycle must register separately.

  • All participants will receive a bike plate and rider bib. The bib number includes a tear-off meal ticket for the post-ride lunch and a raffle ticket to enter for a number of prize drawings. Your bike plate should be attached to the front of your handlebars.

  • The first 1,500 registered riders will be guaranteed their size of jersey and tech tee. Register early!

    Please note: county and city roads, trails (i.e. The Riverfront Trail), parking spaces, overlooks, and other public spaces will remain open and available to members of the general public who have not registered for Tour of the Moon. We simply ask that if you have not paid for the “Tour of the Moon” services in the way of catered aid stations, portalets, bike mechanics, etc that you do not utilize them. It should also be noted that The Ride Collective pays a Colorado National Monument entry fee for all of its participants.


All registrations include an automatic donation to Bicycle Colorado and One Riverfront.
