The 18th annual Bicycle Tour of Colorado to kick off in June
Limited to the first 1500 cyclists who sign up, the organizers of the Bicycle Tour of Colorado have announced the dates of the 18th edition of this highly popular event as June 17-23, 2012.
The organizers will provide camping areas, baggage transportation, route maps, road markings, snack and water stations every 15-30 miles, bicycle repair services, and medical support along the route. The Bicycle Tour of Colorado is an outdoor enthusiast’s dreams come true. It started out as an idea to give teams of riders an excuse to ride and do what they love. The tour is as much about showing off the beauty of the picturesque area as it is about the great week long of riding the bikes.
According to Mr. Kent Powell, the man behind the concept, "For many years, it was our dream to run a bicycle tour full-time but I had to work full-time and it was not a cheap proposition. I felt passionate about doing it so I had to work very hard to make our dreams come true. There was so much to accomplish but we knew that if we could pull it all together that the outcome would be a great celebration for both cycling and people who love the outdoors. What we never really imagined is how big it would be for our area and show-casing the Colorado Rockies and surrounding area. We had to push on because the tour was going to be something great we could be proud of for years to come. For 18 years I have poured my heart and soul into building up the Bicycle Tour Colorado not just for the sport, but to show off where we live in the Rocky Mountains."
For 2012, the Bicycle Tour of Colorado is venturing beyond the Greatest State of Colorado as the participants will head north into the State of Wyoming to see the land of the first transcontinental railroad, real cowboy country with high mesas and rocky bluffs. This year's ride still has plenty of miles in the beautiful home state of Colorado and will allow the participants to enjoy the high peaks and passes as they venture through the mountains of the Park Range, the Medicine Bow Range, and the Front Range. A day off in Steamboat Springs will give the participants an opportunity for some non biking adventures or just watch the clouds build over the peaks and valleys.
"For touring the world, and especially the scenic Rocky Mountains, nothing compares to riding a bicycle. Travel through wide open valleys with a mountain panorama surrounding you. Pedal alongside cool streams of whitewater waterfalls with the wind at your back. Enjoy the challenging climbs and exhilarating descents of the high passes. Explore the history and uniqueness of rugged mountain towns. Meet riders from around the country, and around the world, that all share a passion for bicycling," added Mr. Kent Powell.
The Bicycle Tour of Colorado is supported by SCM Web team, the official PR firm for Bicycle Tour Colorado. SCM Web team provides all necessary information, background, video, blogs, websites, and more to showcase the tour and all that it has to offer. SCM Web team is a full service marketing firm that is into internet marketing and design and is proud to be a part of the Bicycle Tour of Colorado.
"Come see what the Colorado Rockies and the Bicycle Tour Colorado is all about. We have something here for almost everyone and what you discover up here is the mountains and streams will leave you with lasting memories. We pledge to do everything in our power to show you a great ride, the best scenery and great new friends. For over 18 years now, it has been our pleasure to bring you this tour and we know you will come back year after year and bring some of your friends as we love showing off our area. Come discover Colorado in our Bicycle Tour of Colorado 2012," concluded Mr. Kent Powell.
