We'd like to invite you to our 3rd annual ALP Cycles Tour of Colorado Big Mountain Passes. A 3- day tour, in and out of Nederland, through some of the biggest mountains and passes Colorado has to offer. August 3-5 2018. (lodging starts on the 2nd).
The 3-day tour starts and finishes in the small town of Nederland. Day 1 will be Nederland to Grand Lake over/through Rocky Mountain National Park (the highest continuous paved road in the United States, reaching an elevation of 12,183 feet) over Fall River Road- 85miles, 8,900 ft of climbing. A flying fun descent welcomes us into the small Lake town of Grand Lake.
After breakfast, we leave Grand Lake and head for Keystone. Day 2 is our "easiest" and longest of the Tour. Grand Lake to Keystone over the very scenic Ute Pass (9,165ft). 89miles, 5,000ft of climbing. While in Keystone you can take advantage of the Spa, and happy hour for our last night of the tour.
Day 3, we leave Keystone and start climbing right away over Loveland Pass (11,990ft). A long descent and gradual downhill over roads and a mountain bike path brings us to Idaho Springs where we'll turn and climb Oh My God Road to the Peak to Peak Scenic Highway. Today is perhaps the hardest day of the Tour at 70miles, 7,500 ft of climbing.
Lodging in Nederland at the Boulder Creek Lodge (2nd), Grand Lake at the Grand Lake Lodge/cabins (3rd), and Keystone at the Keystone Lodge and Spa (4th).
