We are a group of bike riders in southeastern Colorado. We are like many other groups who just enjoy every aspect of road cycling. We were approached last summer by our local economic development person to gauge our interest in joining in a small local ride. We did that and had a blast. A couple months later we were approached again about ramping up to a century ride featuring the communities of two counties. Of course we were elated at the opportunity to increase biking awareness in our own back yard. Although this is our first attempt at organizing a ride the response of everyone we have approached has been great. We have ridden in a lot of different venues in New Mexico and Colorado, so we have a fair idea of what riders want and expect from a century. We hope to exceed those expectations and promise to do our best to make your experience enjoyable.
