The nearly 400 mile Bicycle Tour of Colorado has some exciting challenges for each cyclist as well as some fabulous scenery -- don’t forget your camera! Please continue training to be in shape for the tour. Cycling 20-30 miles every other day is a good start. Don’t forget to put in at least one longer ride each week (50-80 miles). Riders should be comfortable with 100-150 miles a week by mid June. Ride at least one or two 100-mile rides before June 15, 2014. We advise making distance riding a regular part of the training program, along with eating healthy and keeping well hydrated. Total elevation gain for the week is over 25,000. For any specific health questions or problems, consult with your primary care physician.
